Solomon Oboh, a 23-year-old student at Auchi Polytechnic, is believed to have killed himself.
The National Diploma 1 student of Public Administration was discovered swinging from the ceiling of his room on Friday night, September 10.
According to Punch, the student left a suicide note begging that his phone be delivered to Sandra, his girlfriend, and classmate, whom he pleaded for forgiveness in the note.
It was learned that earlier that day, the deceased had felt humiliated by his inability to correctly spell the words “computer technology” in front of his classmates.
“Solomon was in class on Friday and left for home after class; we returned home later that evening to find him dangling in the ceiling of his room in the Bawack area of South Ibie,” a source told the publication.
“He was a quiet young man who took his studies very seriously. He doesn’t go out and has never shown any signs of depression or anything else,” the source added.
Mr. Mustapha Oshiobugie, the polytechnic’s spokesman, confirmed the incident but said he had yet to be briefed on the details.
