- Advertisment -

This is contained in a statement issued by AbdulRazaq Sanni, the Director, University Relations at the institution, on Sunday in Ilorin.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Fatima Abdullah, a 300 Level student in the Faculty of Law, allegedly committed suicide a few days back, at her home in Abuja.

KWASU Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Muhammed Akanbi, on behalf of the governing council, management, staff and students of the university, extended heartfelt condolences to her family.

While sympathising with family over the sad loss, Akanbi enjoined parents and guardians to be sensitive to their children and wards’ unusual behaviours, especially when they notice withdrawal syndrome in their attitude.

“We also encourage every student to explore all avenues in seeking solutions to inevitable difficulties of any dimensions rather than resorting to unsavoury acts.

“We pray Almighty God to grant the family the fortitude to bear the painful loss,’’ the statement read in part.

NAN reports that this is not the first time the institution recording suicide by members of its academic community.

On Nov. 17, 2017, a lecturer in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture of the university, Dr Solomon Osunlola, was also reported to have committed suicide.
