A student of Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia has allegedly attempted suicide over an alleged carryover course by drinking a substance popularly called ‘sniper’.
The student of Public Administration, Chinedu Iromauanya, attempted to take his life on October 2 because the institute management had refused to clear him even after he had sat for the paper in 2016.
According to PUNCH, the student, an indigene of Abia State has, however, been discharged from the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia on Tuesday.
Responding to the incident, Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Idrisu Kennedy on Wednesday said the management of the institution has not reported the case to the police.
“I am just hearing this now and I do not think the management of the institute has reported the case to the police.
“I will confirm from our officers in charge of the area where the incident happened to unravel the reason for the attempted suicide.”
