400 Level Student Commits Suicide, Says ‘My Father Is Rich But I’m Broke’
Nalkur Zwalnan Lar, a 400-level education student at Federal University, Kashere (FUK), Gombe State, hanged himself outside the school campus on Wednesday night.
According to sources, the deceased committed suicide near a telecommunications mast in Santuraki quarters.
It was reported that he committed suicide after learning, upon the resumption of academic activities in the universities, that his girlfriend had married someone else during the seven-month-long strike launched by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). The name of the girl was not mentioned.
Another issue he specifically mentioned in his leaked farewell letter was his inability to possess a smartphone of N50, 000 despite the millions of naira he alleged his father owns.
According to his neighbors who leaked the farewell letter, the deceased described life as meaningless to him if he could not have a phone of N50, 000 when his father is a multi millionaire.
They said he also berated his erstwhile fiancee for jilting him and marrying another person without his knowledge and ascribed his decision to kill himself to her betrayal and his father’s failure to give him the opportunity to possess items of luxury like expensive phones despite being rich.
However, they noted that the student allegedly pleaded with them not to open the letter until 20 minutes later and that they should deliver it to his parents.
