Ayomide Ariyibi, a 100-level student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), has killed herself, the school’s management has confirmed.
The deceased was a student of business administration.
Toyin Adebula, the deputy registrar, UNILAG, stated that Ariyibi killed herself at home, PUNCH reports.
“She died at home,” he said.
According to an information shared on Facebook by Ajani Damilola, the student was accused of stealing clothes and make-up kits by her roommates in Amina Hall.
Damilola noted that the stolen items were found in her belongings which led her roommates to publicly disgrace her.
Ariyibi was said to have called her mother who came to the school to take her home after the incident.
As she was being led home, her hostel mates reportedly booed and called her names.
Damilola said Ariyibi was later reported to have ingested a bottle of insecticide while alone at home.
She reportedly died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, where she was rushed to by her mother.
The deputy registrar noted that the school was yet to confirm what made her commit suicide.
“There is a rumour that she was accused of stealing some things in the hostel. When we meet the family, we will know what exactly happened. But definitely, she is dead. Definitely, she committed suicide,” he said.
“I have gone to her hall and I have confirmed the incident. Our thoughts are with the family.”
