If there is one worse thing that could happen as a result of drug addiction, it would be losing a life. Many cases of suicide are caused by addiction to drugs. It’s either they can’t handle it anymore or they have been so desperate to stop and change but could not do it until they finally gave up. Imagine losing a life, one that could have been successful but decided to end it all. In Nigeria, a student who is already in his final year killed himself to drug addiction.
The management of the University of Ilorin on Friday, December 7, said that investigations by the institution revealed that its student, late Adigun Emmanuel, committed suicide as an eventual culmination of drug addiction. The director of corporate affairs of the university, Kunle Akogun, made the revelation in a statement which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin. Akogun stated that late Emmanuel of the Faculty of Agriculture “resorted to the unsavory action to ventilate his frustration over his failure in his final year project.

He said that the university after a painstaking investigation revealed that late Adigun took his own life as an eventual culmination of his pathetic drug addiction. The director further stated that the student must have unwisely adopted drugs to address the prolonged depression he suffered as a result of personal challenges he could not bear. “Some close friends of the late Adigun revealed that the obviously depressed student had unsuccessfully attempted suicide thrice, having publicly expressed profound regrets on many occasions,” he said.
Akogun said that the student had complained that it was his nagging younger sister that was sponsoring his education. He said late Adigun had lamented that it would be too difficult for him to approach the same younger female sibling for the needed finances to complete his extended stay on campus.
