UNN student commits suicide this morning

A student from the university sent me a mail about what happened in their school early this morning. The students of University of Nigeria, Nsuka, woke up to find one of their own hanging from a rope in an unfinished Franco building beside the hockey pitch in their school. Roommates of the dead student said he left the room around 2am this morning and they thought he had gone to study, only for his corpse to be found dangling from a rope this morning. He's a 3rd year Physics and Astronomy student in his early 20's. A purported suicide note which read, "The controversy is over" was discovered near him.

The dead student, now identified as Onyebuchi Okonkwo had a mental illness last year and was hospitalized at UI for one month. So so sad. May his soul rest in peace...amen

Very sad indeed. I wonder what will become of him at judgement��. This is what comes with thinking your problems are bigger than God. There's NOTHING absolutely impossible for him to do.

How are we sure the Guy actually hung himself. What is some people actually perpetrate this dastardy act? How are we suppose to know. They made it look like a suicide and everybody gawks it. Umnnn Whatever happens, we pray we dont have reoccurence of this in future. Amen. (No forensic investigation in 9JA) SOOOO SAD

Anonymous said...

two things might have happened 1. it's either some gang of people made him hang himself (maybe cult folks). 2. or he's passing thru some challenges and refused to share with people that can counsel or advise him.
WHICH EITHER WAY, THE LORD WILL CONSOLE HIS LOVED ONES MOST ESPECIALLY HIS PARENTS.

Why conclude it was suicide? If they coduct an autopsy they would come up with a different thing entirely and I am so sure about that, remember they sid he left around 2am to read, call me naïve but when I was in school I didn't go to night class in my boxers. I smell rat here. He's roomates should be the first to be interogated

Diamondeyez said...

Pls I suspect the dude was killed and hanged to make it look as if he commited suicide...... this case should be thoroughly investigated oh... hmmm

U dnt need 2 put up his pic to prove a point dt ur story is true I mean it's sad dt he committed suicide but den his family shouldn't go thru d pain of seeing his dead body online. I'm jst saying my opinion oh. Post my comment

I find it very hard to sympathize with suicidals! Sorry I just do! Cause what ever you ar going thru, there's someone out there going tru a lot worse! So many ppl r homeless, so many ppl don't have families, money, jobs...so many ppl out there hav ill health and r battling to stay alive! No matter what yo going tru, there's a lot to be grateful abt and suicide is NEVER an option!

Sad but people who commit suicide are very selfish people who leave others to clean up the unexplained mess they left behind

Nigerian schools need student advice and support services where students can reach out for assistance when in need or break from tedious academic workload or even burden of life. Nigeria is full of stress biko! poor boy! And for those unsympathetic nitwits passing judgement remember the journey is not for the swift but the the that shows mercy!

BLOGLORD said...

u see the hours of 12-3am are the times demons are at work in
top gear. we should be prayerful at such times. this guy might have been manipuated spiritually to go hang himself.
there are so much forces working against humans. prayer is key and very essential.

I believe someone did this to this boy, maybe cult boys. He can't just take away his life like. The should investigate this matter. Even the room mate is a prime suspect.

Anonymous said...

You guys should not judge. I have a very stong feeling he was murdered. If he was going to study would he have been wearing boxers? Means someone must have taken his pants off plus seems he's an intelligent boy, doubt he did it to himself. I'm extremely saddened by this.

Some cult boys am sure r behind dis. D suicide letter has a lot of meaning THE CONTROVERSY IS OVER. Something like dis happened in uniben years back where some cult guys went into a guys room n told him 2 hang himself n also made him write suicide note dis is their new tactics. They make u hang urself so dat no1 will know dey r behind it.

@bloglord u made sense. Christian should be vigilant cos d devil ur adversary goeth about seeking whom he may devour. parents pray ceaselessly for ur children, children pray for ur future and every other thing. God will help us as long as we long to Him.

They should do an autopsy,and check for finger prints on his body. That young man was hung. He didn't commit suicide.

AN AUTOPSY SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT ON THE BODY, AND THEY SHOULD CHECK FOR FINGER PRINTS AS WELL. THIS IS CULT RELATED MURDER.

So go and specialize in forenstic investigation naw? If there is no school for that in Naija join a group of people that are also interested and self-teach yourselfs! Then go to a proper official to get your course regulated or you can demand that schools carry a course in forensics! Instead of you to sit by your computer doing nothing and wishing for forensics investigation in nigeria! Lazy thing!

Linda i dont know why i believe this guy was bullied, maybe he couldn't take it anymore, but that is not a good reason to die. please can you write an article about it, teach people to speak out, don't just hold back, don't die for nothing.

Such a pity ... Dont hang your self, find someone to speak to,

you know its a sad one, given his' history of mental illness. he probably was been ostracised or ashamed of his history. whatever happened, it is lesson to all living that we should be friend enough to be there for someone 'going through'

He killed himself, he had the chance to hold on the railings or the bricks beside him if he was forced to hang himself.....olumayo

Anonymous said...

He looks dirty, seems like someone who must have struggled on the ground, this might be murder, he might have been forced to write the suicide note at gun point and subsequently strangled. Let's not be quick to conclude suicide, I'm sure as a human being, survival instincts would have made him grab that rail or step on the stone or even wrap his arms around that wall, hanging is not such an easy and comfortable way to die u know. I smell something fishy.

Anonymous said...

Well..I will add dat no one knows d true story, whether he actually killed himself or was killed! His room mates would help by tellin whether he wore shorts out of d room or he was puttin on trousers, whether he carried his books since dey thot he was goin to read, and d state he was in d previous day and wen he slept!!!

This is sad. It's not the time to be arguing about he'll fire and judgement. Only God knows what led to this. It's a huge pity. This only used to happen in Western countries.

I have never posted on this site before. If he truly suffered from mental illness, be it schizophrenia, severe depression or bipolar, you need to be educated about the illness, including the agony and torment he must have experienced before you all make your judgments. I ‘m not justifying what he did, but he must have been very very sick. Please show some empathy, especially to those that think they know for sure where he is going to end up. May none of us or our family members ever experience mental illness in Jesus name. Amen

If u know a thing or 2 about depression,its like a mental illness of its own. So if someone takes his own life as a result of depression,its obvious the person is not normal anymore. Depression is something very few understand so plz we have neither d knowledge nor d right 2judge.

Only God reads the hearts of every individual. Only Him who sees in the darkness and in the light knows exactly what happened. We can deceive our fellow human beings but not God. Evil that men do leaves after them. From all indications it look like it was not a suicide. The CID's must get up and do their work. This is a widow's son and God fights for widows and orphans so God's anger must avenge this death.
