A 22-year-old student of Sheikh Kamaldeen Arabic School, Ilorin, Kwara State, has committed suicide.
The student, identified as Alfa Musa, was found hanging in his room at Dagbenu compound in the Ogidi area of Ilorin on Thursday December 7, 2023.
Spokesperson of the state Police Command, DSP Ejire Adetoun Adeyemi, who confirmed the development, disclosed that an investigation has commenced into the incident.
The PPRO said the deceased left a suicide note addressed to his parents.
“To my mum and dad, I am sorry, I did this because God did not answer my prayers, I will rather die than commit sin, please, forgive me, I love you, bury me at home,” the note reads.
It was gathered that one of his friends paid a visit to his residence on the day of the incident but found the door to his room locked.
After repeated knocks on the door with no response, the door was forced open and the deceased was found hanging.
An empty paint container which he allegedly used to hang himself was also found in his room.
A neighbour described the deceased who hailed from Osun State as a devout Muslim.
Meanwhile, one of his colleagues posted a video from the funeral prayer.
