The name of the student is Adedeji Emmanuel, a part two student of the Department of Management and Accounting. We appeal to parent and guidance to please let our children know that failure or depression occasioned by whatever, suicide should not be an option.

We sympathise with the parent and friends of the deceased. He was at his formative stage. We heard that he left a suicide note. It pains us that the boy is no more. His action was because of one challenge or the other.
