Tragic! Boy Commits Suicide By Drinking Rat Poison After His Mother Told Him Not to Return Home If He Failed JAMB Again

A young boy has taken his life by drinking rat poison after his mother allegedly told him not to return to the house if he failed Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam again.
The boy who was on his fourth attempt failed again and committed suicide after dropping a note for his mother. Checkout the pathetic report below;
A Facebook user identified as Klariza Ruby Ochei, has taken to the social networking platform and shared the story of a young boy who failed to pass the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and as a result, committed suicide to ease the pain.
It was gathered that the young boy reportedly gave in to pressures from his mum who had earlier given him an order to pass the university entrance examination but unfortunately he could not. This motivated him to resort to taking rat poison having failed on another try.
Here’s how the story was narrated in full on Facebook;
“My mom told me a true like story yesterday that pierce my bone. Her friend’s son wrote jamb the first time, he did well but wasn’t given admission. He wrote the next year and he wasn’t given admission as well. He didn’t give up, he wrote last Year and performed woefully, and his parents were angry with him. And his mom told him if he write again this year and doesn’t do well, he shouldn’t come back home. Because she has wasted a lot of money on him alone.
The boy took jamb this year and unfortunately, his result was unpleasing. His parents were not at home. He told his friends(his neighbor) that he didn’t do well. He told them what his mother told him.
This boy went into the house locked himself, wrote a letter to his mom that his mom has never gone through his note even when he attended tutorial. She is so busy with work and he took rat poison and died. And this boy is the only child of his mother.
Please I beg of you parents never put fear in a child when it comes to academics. Even if he performed woefully he can learn a vocational trade and be successful. There are a lot of children who don’t do well in classroom but in the room of vocational skills they are unbeatable.
Besides there is always a room for change, You want your child to go far than you’ve gone then you shouldn’t do it a Scarry way. Believe me I am a teenager too and I tell you parents IT’S NOT EASY!! If it’s easy why didn’t you get to that stage you want your child to be now during your own time?? The funniest part is some parents don’t have Time for their children. To go through their children books is like a big task. Then how would you know if his failure has been telling on him long before now??
Please let’s always encourage our children.. let’s give them the support we can let’s show them love n care as parents. No child is dull. It’s either faults are from the parents or teachers. Parents spend quality time with your children I beg you.”

  12. Chikaogwu chioma kevina

    A lots of parents are really doing the wrong thing by pressuring their kids towards academic… not every child’s brain is that hot, some actual need to follow gradual process before they excel but parents will pressure you to even go for a course of their choice not minding your capabilities…

  13. Parents need to take note of this… You don’t abuse your child if he or she fails… U encourage them so they can do better next time.. Even if they fail again, always be there…

    Hmm, what a world, the mother really made a mistake by putting pressure on his son, education is not compulsory, What a pity RIP

  15. The mother made a huge mistake by saying such to her son……what a sad story

  16. Sometimes I wonder why some mothers always put their children in doing what they don’t want to do, only God knows how strict the mother is because is not only that statement that will make d child to commit suicide. We are d future of tomorrow, Education or no Education. Is not all about going to school but our parents won’t understand that. Poor child
    May his gentle soul rest in peace Amen

    Some mother’s are actually the cause of their problems, why will she say something like that to her son, is the son the computer that marks jamb questions? Her duty as a mother is to encourage the son not to discourage him. She is just so annoying..

  22. Wow!…. This story is actually a pathetic one. Parents should learn to create time for their kids academics. The worst way to teach a child is by putting fear in the mind of that child cos the fear won’t allow that child assimilate what he/she is being taught. Failure in your academics is not the end of the world. Some kids are not just blessed to be successful in their academics but put them in another field that child will be much more successful. Most people don’t know how to handle depression and most times the only way out is just to take their own lives. His mother shouldn’t have said those depressing words to him. Nigeria’s system of education is already messed up. So many celebrities these days are doing well in their field of work and not with their certificates. Yes it’s advisable to have a certificate to fall back on but out country does not value our graduates. There is no job opportunity for fresh graduates. God help us all in our daily activities. RIP beautiful soul❤️

    Parents should learn to support their children even when they fail, it makes them want to strive more.

  27. Nwankwo onyinye grace

    This is so frustrating oh… Rip

  28. I wonder the kind of mother that will pressurize her very own only son about his academic performance instead of encouraging him.
    Well, this is a typical example of “Had known at last”

  29. There is no moral justification for what he has done. parents should be careful in their decisions towards some issues especially as it concerns their children.

  30. Ezeifeka Emmanuella (92)

    Nawa oh. African parents need to be more accepting when it comes to all these stuff

    some parents don’t really understand what parenting is all about and they end up ruining the life of their children with their words.
    words really kill people’s spirit

  49. Ndubuisi Miracle Queen

    The story is heartbreaking. The mother failed the child by threatening him.

  50. Nwosu Valentine Chidera

    It is pathetic how a mother could feel so free to threaten her own child.

  51. why do parents feel its our fault when we fail, abeg they should be reasonable enough to check out for other factors. rip

  52. Chinweuba Tobechi

    Please I beg of you parents never put fear in a child when it comes to academics. The best you can do is to encourage and never give up on them.

    Youth please do not let what people will say and take your life not ever your parents
