A 20-year-old student of the University of Ilorin, Sanni Hameedat, has reportedly committed suicide after lending a boy she met on the social media platform, the sum of five hundred thousand naira
The management asserted that the cause of her death was related to the pressure from the app agents, who were demanding fast repayment, coupled with her brother’s inability to assist her financially, which led to depression.
The management further maintained that she was reported to have ingested a bottle of pesticide popularly known as Sniper the previous night, only for her roommate to discover her in distress while she was foaming from her mouth .
Meanwhile, the Dean, Student Affairs Unit, Prof M.T. Yakubu, and the Head, Corporate Affairs, Kunle Akogun of the institution, are yet to comment on the issue as they both claimed to be partaking in the 37th and 38th combined convocation ceremony.
