It would be recorded that many Nigerians have yet to come to terms with what could have led a teenage undergraduate of Babcock University, Verishima Unokyur, who recently took his life , write GBENGA ADENIJI and MOTUNRAYO JOEL. In what appeared as a clue to the mystery surrounding the suicide act by a part-two student of Babcock University, 19-year-old Verishima Unokyur, his mother, Patricia, on Friday said her son couldn’t have done such to himself without external influence.
The mother, who was pensive and heart-broken, told some sympathizers who came to console the family in their home in Ewu Tuntun, Mafoluku Oshodi area of Lagos that her son never gave her any trouble while alive. She also disclosed her notice of his extremely reserved and shy nature which gave her concern. She said sadly, ‘‘Why would my dear son commit suicide? He cannot do that. I know him. He was manipulated and God will fight for us. I will forever love my son. I know he was too reserved. I forced him to talk to me. I asked him if he was facing any threats anywhere or he didn’t like the school he was attending but he said no. Since he entered the university, his reserved nature got worse. He was neat and obedient. He is a son I wish to have again and again.’’
Verishima, who hailed from Benue State and was studying Social Work at Babcock, committed suicide in their apartment after the New Year when his mother, who works with the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, was away on night duty and his younger brother, Asor, was asleep.
SUNDAY PUNCH learnt that the deceased’s mother is a widow who has not remarried since the demise of her husband about 15 years ago but dedicates her time to the care of her two boys. A source close to the family who refused to be named said the woman created time for her kids by taking them out most times and also frequently visited Verishima in school.
