Daniel Mba, a 300-level student at the University of Nigeria Nsukka’s Biochemistry Department, committed suicide by jumping from the third floor of a three-story building on Friday, March 12.
The deceased, from Enugu State’s Aninri Local Government Area, was allegedly caught cheating with his phone during an ongoing examination in his department.
A lecturer is said to have taken his phone, torn his script a few minutes before the exam ended, and handed him a new script to start over.

The deceased exited the examination hall and proceeded to his lodge in Onuiyi, Nsukka Local Government Area of the state, where he allegedly injected poisonous substances, including rat poison.
The student jumped from a storey building around 11:34 p.m. after the poisons failed to produce an immediate result.
When the incident occurred, they rushed to the deceased room, where they discovered rat poison, bleach containers, and syringes, according to an occupant of the lodge who identified herself as Nkechi Abo.
When they discovered the student struggling for life after jumping from the third floor, another occupant, Christabel Okpara, told Vanguard that they alerted the lodge’s caretaker. He was rushed to Nsukka’s Bishop Shanahan Hospital, where he died early on Saturday, March 13.
After every attempt to resuscitate him in the hospital failed, the lodge’s caretaker, who requested anonymity, told Vanguard that he reported the incident to the police.
“A friend who stayed with him in the hospital when he regained consciousness said he expressed frustration with his last examination and financial hardship. He explained that his family was not providing him with enough money to keep him afloat. He expressed his dissatisfaction with the lecturer’s seizure of his phone “The narrator was the caretaker.
“When I arrived at the lodge, I discovered him clutching a kitchen knife on the floor. We rushed him to the hospital and provided him with immediate medical care. We went back to his room later and found rat poison and bleach. We also saw syringes on the floor. We also saw a rope tied to his ceiling fan.
“He is a loner because I have not seen him with any friend since he parked into the lodge. I was surprised that one girl who identified herself as Scholastica showed up as his girlfriend. I think he must have been suffering from depression silently.”
