Shocking! Nasarawa Polytechnic Student Drinks Poison Due to Excessive Carry-over Courses

Nasarawa Polytechnic Student Lafia, identified as Chinedu Irumuanya has allegedly attempted to take his own life by drinking a substance said to be ‘sniper.’

The student who is said to be 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.

It was 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.

PUNCH Metro 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.

When contacted, the Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr. Silas Gyar, said he would not speak to PUNCH Metro.

He said: “I cannot speak to PUNCH Metro because he is not on my appointment list; so, I don’t have time for him.”

The Nasarawa State Police Command said it would investigate the attempted suicide.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Idrisu Kennedy, made the promise on Wednesday in an interview with PUNCH Metro in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital.

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.”

    Carryover wasn’t worth his life. He should have just written it then pray for it to never occur again. Suicide wasn’t an option and it shouldn’t be

  24. So sad but I wish this youth understood what it means to have the life of God.Wish he understood that education does not define a man but the Word of God.That a true discription of a man is not in the number of A’s he gets or number of certificate he acquires but his true discription is in the Word of God.

  25. Is not about drinking poison, it calls for more hard work… Frustration is very bad.
