NYSC member takes his life in Ibadan

A 300-LEVEL student of Department of Medical Laboratory, University of Benin (UNIBEN), Miss Christabell Omoremime Buoro, was found dead in her hostel at Plot 4 Uwaifo Lane, Newton Street, Benin, yesterday. Sources claim she was frustrated after she was jilted by a lover.

Investigations by neighbours revealed that the 21-year-old undergraduate took her life by taking a cocktail of insecticide and detergents earlier in the day. An empty sachet of the product was seen at the scene.

A suicide note found on her corpse, which was read aloud by policemen that came to evacuate her body, indicated that Buoro took her life following a soured relationship with her boyfriend who she said had jilted her.

A neighbour, who refused to be named said that from her mood in the morning, she noticed that Buoro was not in her elements, regretting that such a promising girl will take her life because of her boyfriend. She however thanked God that Buoro dropped a note, adding that if she did not do so, her roommates would have been in hot soup.

Police have since waded into the incident as two persons were invited for questioning over the content of the suicide note.

Effort to confirm the incident through the school authorities met brick wall as Public Relations Officer of UNIBEN, Mr. Michael Osasuyi, said that the university was waiting for a detailed briefing since the incident did not happen within the school premises.

Similarly, a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) intern serving at Dugbe in Ibadan North West Local Government Area of Oyo State, Johnson Onyilo has committed suicide.

Onyilo, who is among 2018 Batch-B Stream of Corps members graduated from the Department of Accounting at University of Jos, is a native of Makurdi in Benue State.

Although his reason for taking his life is yet to be known, Onyilo was living with his sister who confirmed his death.

Her confirmation was corroborated by Public Relations Officer of NYSC in Oyo State, Mrs. Christy Olatoye, who said Onyilo was yet to be buried.
