According to our sources, the deceased was rushed to OAU health centre via an ambulance, but he was brought in dead and certified dead on arrival. Reasons for the suicide was yet to be ascertained.
It was also reported that another part 4 student of OAU, from the Department of Management and Accounting, Faculty of Administration, whose identity hasn’t been confirmed yet also committed suicide earlier today and was rushed to the university health centre. He was also confirmed dead thereafter. The reason for his own suicide was also yet to be confirmed.
The two unfortunate deaths led to a protest on OAU campus this morning as students found them too strange and sudden. Attempts to speak with the University P.R.O was unsuccessful as a result of his telephone line that was said to be unreachable.
