A student of Microbiology from the University of Lagos has reportedly committed suicide after failing some of his courses.
The student identified simply as Niyi by one of his friends who was devastated by the news, while paying tribute to him, acknowledged that ‘school’ doesn’t necessarily determine your life and so, it’s not worth your life.
The friend wrote:
“Mehn…today cannot get better…RIP Niyi…you were my boy in FIFA…its sad to know another mic student committed suicide….y’all are failing to understand that it’s not by all this school…school doesn’t determine your life…God will judge those behind these because y’all have kids too…Rest in peace brother….Till we meet again I love you but God loves you most…Microbiology is not worth your life …speak up…mehn I’m sad af.”
