A young man whose identity is yet to be ascertained has allegedly committed suicide over a failed relationship.
A source said the incident happened on Friday, November 18, at the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
It was gathered that the man who was a final Year student of the polytechnic was already doing his Industrial Attachment (IT), preparatory to graduation, when he was jilted by his lover.
A student of the institution, Iyke Orji, who disclosed this, described the deceased as one who was full of energy and life, as well as an intelligent boy with his performance close to distinction.
Orji further said, ‘He was in his IT days, a student of Public Administration. He decided to stay in Oko for his one year industrial training, but instead of focusing on his training, he decided to search for true love.’
The account said that his girlfriend recently broke up with him and the news devastated him and on Friday, when he couldn’t endure it, he drank sniper insecticide and died.
The Public relations officer of the institution, Mr Chijioke Ibeziakor, was not available to react to the incident as calls to his mobile phone were not attended to.
The state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, was not available to confirm the incident.
