It was gathered that Adegoke a National Diploma (NDII) student of Electrical Electronic Engineering, committed suicide on Monday, May 22, when his friends were preparing for the first semester exam.

The deceased allegedly used his school fee to play an online betting on Friday May 19, which he lost.

He was reportedly rushed to the school clinic from where he was later referred to a specialist hospital outside the school in Ilaro before he was pronounced dead.

Confirming the tragic incident, polytechnic spokesman, Sola Abiala, on Wednesday, May 24 said Adegoke perhaps committed after realising that himself and his friends would not be allowed to write their exams.

“The Rector said he was called from the school clinic that one of the students is sick. Adegoke Samuel, ND 2 in Electrical Electronic Engineering was later referred to Hosanah specialist hospital. When they got there, they got the information that he used his school fees to bet and lose. He also used his roommate’s to bet and also lost,” Abala said.

“We have a policy here that any student that does not pay school fees will not write examination. He realized that he and his friend would not write the exam, that was why he committed suicide.

“We sent for his parents and briefed them. His father told us that his late son did the same last session and he had to send money to him to pay the fees . He said if he had known about the latest one, he would have paid for it.”
