Poly Student Commits Suicide in Lagos


Olivia James, a Higher National Diploma student at Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic in Unwana, Ebonyi State, is said to have committed suicide in Lagos after her boyfriend dumped her.

After a quarrel with her lover Henry, who is claimed to be on the run, the deceased, who celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, October 6, was said to have taken a toxic drug.

Her friends discovered her unresponsive in her apartment over the weekend and brought her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

“She took her own life after her lover broke up with her. During their miscommunication, Henry stopped answering her phone calls;

rather an unknown female was the one answering the calls.

“Unable to live with the realisation that the man she spent all her savings on was likely cheating and acting uninterested in their relationship, Olivia took the move of ending her life,” a source said.

“She left a Whatsapp message for one of her friends about taking her life,” a friend of the deceased posted.

Godswill Chinecherem Okoro, the Students Union Government’s Director of Information and Publicity, of Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic also confirmed the incident in a statement.
