A 100 Level Chemical Engineering student of the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has died of apparent suicide after a long-standing battle with depression.
A lady identified as Hikmat Gbadamosi was found dead in her room according to her friend, the deceased had been battling a medical condition since birth and the resulting pain sent her into depression.
She is assumed to have consumed two bottles of a poisonous substance on Saturday and was only discovered on Monday after her bestie mobilized classmates to her room to know why she didn’t show up in school for a test they had yesterday.
On getting there, they saw her door locked and peeped through the window – only to see the girl laying dead. An alarm was raised and people gathered to break the door.
