That is why we still need a lot of well trained student counsellors in the universities. This day we hve a lot of teenage pupils as university undergraduate. This guy would hve known there ar better things to do and better ur life instead of dying for a university certificate

Him later come back and sing for you and I, this life I can't kill myself, who dey kill himself na mumu man, 70 years man

Stupidity to the highest other, u go tell me whether school na by force even timmay him mama send to school to take over what him papa left behind but as him dey school school no gree enter, shabi him kill himself.. Waiting timmaya neva achieved in his life..

We’re so bent on being a primeval people in Nigeria we forget the need for recreation and it’s effect on our mental health. We need parks where we can take walks, picnics in well manicured lawns. Such places we can enter without paying to relax.

This can't b d reason. Is not compulsory to post every now n then without verifying ur information.

Indictment of a system dat places so importance on Paper qualificatns! History shown & vindicated belief that most of the great men & women in history, & even today, are necessarily an intellectuals. So, intellect or not, there's a seed of GREATNESS - creativity, in every man!

Na mumu dey commit suicide.... Isn't there an option of walking away or taking a break?

Looking good

Very bad, shouldn't have taken ur life by urself knowing that education isn't valued here in nigeria

Nigerians and the economy have made artisans look like nonentities.

Instead of investigating homicide they call it suicide We must do better

Na mumu dey worry am if u tire for school why u nor go look for work. You go commit suicide people like this I never feel sorry for them at all lots of options out there for u to do dem nor dey force person go school. So weti u go tell GOD then oh I couldn't cope with reading 🤷

Sad indeed.

I hope the guy is listening to ur advice in the realm of spirit..meanwhile try to share ur academic challenges with those u know can help u out...

Shey him no go just leave go him papa house abi them force ham at G*n point

Una never wan tell us watin kill am


Na so so bad news una go dey carry🙄🙄🙄

Story.... The family should investigate his death further if they have the resources to carry out a postmortem.

He failed to understand that only certificate can't make people great in life. Most of the Great men and women don't have certificate.

Na mumu him be

Good for him

Blame some parents for putting over pressure on their children.

Suicide is never an option

Life is not a do or die affair if you can't meet up academically please just drop and do what you think will be best for your future. There are things you can do outside school and still fulfill. Ending it that way is not the right thing. There are people looking up to you

Sortings .... our lecturers don’t even understand their damage to Nigeria is worst to what our politicians are doing

He allowed the giant self to continue to ministers to him, instead ministering of him to preach to the giant self. RIP

U no fit change course?

OMG! Bad News don tire me. Father God please, deliver Our Dear Nation Nigeria from Bad News in the Mighty and everlasting name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray with thanksgiving, AMEN!

Which studies again...Nigerian student no Sabi where e dey pain am. School just resumed man...take a chill pill.

He never see anything yet

All he needed was a break.

Haaaaaa na hell fire straight u no go rest in peace ooo which kind thinking be dis

Devil is a liar 😱

Terrible. Where is the support?

Universities in Nigeria should have counseling support department where students with mental health issues can go! Universities in western countries give that kind of support to their students.

This goes to show the importance of evaluating our mental health on a regular. People go through a lot daily and most won't even share their challenges. Let's try to talk to our loved ones more, pay more attention to those around us and let God continue to provide for our needs.

Hmmmm! Very unfortunate. Why must he commit suicide?

Not a wise decision bro least he's coping with non existence now.


Is that what he told anybody b4 doing it?

Studies that u will rarely get a good job for , that’s what someone is killing himself for . If that’s the case, he’s a Mumu boy.
