A student of Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia, has allegedly attempted to take his own life by drinking a substance said to be ‘sniper.’
The student, one Chinedu Iromuanya, in Public Administration Department, reportedly attempted committing suicide by drinking ‘sniper’ on October 2 over an alleged carryover he had in one of his courses, according to a report by The Punch
Our correspondent gathered that Iromuanya was sad because the polytechnic management had allegedly refused to clear him even after he had sat for the paper in 2016.
It was learnt that the student, an indigene of Abia State, has however been discharged from the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia on Tuesday as confirmed by a nurse who did not want his name in print.
Further findings, however, indicated that the management of the polytechnic had yet to report the case to the police station.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Idrisu Kennedy said the matter would be investigated;
He said: “I am just hearing this now and I do not think the management of the institution has reported the case to the police.
“I would confirm from our officers in charge of the area where the incident happened to unravel the reason for the attempted suicide.”
