Arikekpar Lucky, a 200-level student at the Federal University Otuoke in Bayelsa State, committed suicide. The 27-year-old hung himself with a rope tied to a ceiling fan after locking the door and windows.
He reportedly left a suicide note expressing frustrations with the pressure from his relative, saying they left him with no option other than to kill himself for peace to reign.
His family said they would have taken the matter seriously but with the suicide note he left behind, they had to accept the situation and move on. He had made such attempts to take his life twice last year.
