OAU Student Commits Suicide Over Poor Academic Performance

Posted by on August 4th, 2019 Under News


The authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), on Saturday, confirmed the death of one of her own due to poor academic performance.

The deceased, Opeyemi Dara, who was a final year student of the Faculty of Arts, Department of English Language, allegedly committed suicide after taking a suspected dose of lethal substance popularly known as “snipper”.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt that she allegedly took her life following her poor academic performance, although the details of the incident were still sketchy.

Dara’s academic records obtained indicated that she had five outstanding courses and 12 Special Electives.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of OAU, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju confirmed the incident and promised that the institution would investigate and make its findings public.

Olarewaju appealed to students not to contemplate committing suicide because of poor academic performance,

“ We sympathise with the parents and guardian of the deceased known as Dara.

” We just want our students and young ones to know that depression is not a thing they should encourage, no matter the situation or circumstance they find themselves.

“ Some people in the past have passed through the same situation and circumstances and came out clean.

“Now, suicide can never be an option and people, especially the young ones who believe that taking their own lives is an act of gallantry should know that it is not.

“We want to appeal to students, particularly OAU students to take things easy. Any child that fails; that is why the university says you can rerun a course, you can resit a course.

“People out there also face challenges and when you are in school, failure or repetition of a course or particular subject is also part of the challenges students must face.

“The university will get to the root of the incident and get back to the public,” Olarewaju said.
