Kwara varsity student commits suicide

A 400-level student of Kwara State University identified as Rashidat Shittu, has reportedly committed suicide over her academic performance.

Her colleagues who confirmed the incident to punch on Sunday, February 11, 2024, said the deceased committed suicide ahead of her upcoming exams by ingesting insecticide.

Shittu was said to have been pronounced dead on arrival at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital where she was rushed to for treatment.

It was reliably gathered that she was first taken to the school clinic before she was later referred to the teaching hospital to save her life

A staff member who was part of the medical team that attended to her at UITH but did not want her name in print said that the student was brought in dead. 

“Her colleagues said she was having issues with her academic status in school. She later informed her colleagues when she started feeling the pain that she had ingested insecticide,” she said.

A resident who witnessed her burial at the Muslim cemetery, Osere, Ilorin, told the publication that the deceased was buried at the facility by family members and employees of the students affairs unit of KWASU.
