A final year student of Agricultural Engineering at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), who is also reported to be a participant of the Mavrodi Mondial Movement investment scheme, popularly called MMM, has committed suicide.
The student, identified as Tobechukwu Okeke, was found on Sunday morning, dangling from a rope in his room at Odenigwe, a community in Nsukka, Enugu State.
Okeke’s Facebook page showed that he was into MMM.
Though the cause of Okeke’s death is yet to be ascertained, some of his neighbours suggested that he was in debt, some said he was tired of schooling, others attributed his suicide to the loss of money in a network business he invested into.
The Enugu Police Command on Tuesday commenced an investigation on his alleged suicide.
In a statement signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amarizu, the command said that the deceased was a final year student of Agriculture Economics and a native of Awgu in Enugu State.
It said that Okeke was seen in his room lifeless with a blue rope on his neck hung on the ceiling fan’s hook on Nov. 27.
The command said that a note written by the deceased to his friends and relations was found at the scene of the alleged suicide.
“Some of the excerpts from the note read as follows: “I got it all wrong when I rejected Jesus. God gave me wisdom, God gave me all I needed to succeed. I rejected Him.
“My fellow gamblers, I am sorry; my fellow lions, I am sorry; my family, I let you all down,” it said.
The command noted that the body of the late student had been deposited at the Bishop Shanahan Hospital Mortuary, Nsukka.
