The deceased, Opeyemi Dara, who was a final year student of the Faculty of Arts, Department of English Language, allegedly committed suicide after taking a suspected dose of lethal substance popularly known as “snipper”.

The News Agency of (NAN) learnt that she allegedly took her life following her poor academic performance, although the details of the incident were still sketchy.

Dara’s academic records obtained indicated that she had five outstanding courses and 12 Special Electives.

When contacted, the Public Relations Officer of OAU, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju confirmed the incident and promised that the institution would investigate and make its findings public.

Olarewaju appealed to students not to contemplate committing suicide because of poor academic performance,

“ We sympathise with the parents and guardian of the deceased known as Dara.

” We just want our students and young ones to know that depression is not a thing they should encourage, no matter the situation or circumstance they find themselves.

“ Some people in the past have passed through the same situation and circumstances and came out clean.

“Now, suicide can never be an option and people, especially the young ones who believe that taking their own lives is an act of gallantry should know that it is not.

“We want to appeal to students, particularly OAU students to take things easy. Any child that fails; that is the university says you can rerun a course, you can resit a course.

“People out there also face challenges and when you are in , failure or repetition of a course or particular subject is also part of the challenges students must face.

“The university will get to the root of the incident and get back to the public,” Olarewaju said.

ASUP issued the ultimatum during its National Executive Council meeting at the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra on Thursday.

The resolution was entitled “Renewed Threats to the Survival of Polytechnic Education in Nigeria: The Position of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics”.

The National President of the union, Mr Usmam Dutse, said the polytechnic system, which had the mandate to provide training and research services for the nation’s ailing economy should not be allowed to die.

The national president told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that 49 chapters of the union attended the NEC meeting out of the 52 chapters in the country.

He said others were ASUP/FGN 2010 agreement, renewed efforts at objectionable insertions in the review process of the scheme of services for polytechnics and violations in the implementation of the 2017 MoU signed with the government.

“Our union has reviewed the above situation as well as the refusal of government to respond to several correspondences on the issues captured above, we resolve to rise up to the occasion once again in defensc of the sector.

“The unions NEC is hereby issuing a 21-day ultimatum to the government to address the issues listed satisfactorily or risk the indefinite withdrawal of services by our members nationwide.

“As a follow up to this, all organs and chapters of our union are to begin mobilisation for engagement as we pursue this onerous task of rescuing the sector from imminent collapse,” he said.
