Devastated by the frustrations she suffered in the hands of her lecturer, a final-year female student of Ebonyi State University (EBSU) has taken her own life.

According to Persecondnews, she reportedly failed a course multiple times, resulting in her suicide.

The deceased’s name was given as Favour Ugwuka.

In a viral video seen by Persecondnews, a woman said to be the mother of the girl accused a lecturer of making her daughter commit suicide.

“The lecturer said he is the best and that nobody can teach like him. He should come and carry my daughter, who has committed suicide,” the woman said.

ASP Josh Ukandu, the Ebonyi State Police spokesperson, confirmed the student’s death on Friday.

“I do not know the details of what led to whatever. As of now, it is just a reported suicide case. We cannot even say conclusively what it is. We just got the report that the student committed suicide.

“What I am saying is that we got a report of a suicide. So I cannot say the reasons behind it. I cannot even say whether it is suicide or not.

“As you said, a lot of things are flying online with regard to the issue. The report was that somebody committed suicide, a girl and a student of Ebonyi State University,” he said.

He said if the family of the deceased “suspects something,” they should report it to the police for investigation.

He added: “I cannot confirm that. The report came as a suicide, and of course, if the report comes as a suicide, there is nothing to investigate.

“So, now that it behooves on the family of the person who committed suicide, we may say that ‘we are suspecting something’ which will now lead to the investigation.”
