Another person’s life has been claimed by the new ‘effective’ insecticide- sniper. The new victim is a female student in the Department of Library Science, Faculty of Education, Bayero University Kano (BUK).
Just as cityroversblogspot warned through the story. Read it here http://cityrovers.blogspot.com.ng/2016/04/beware-insecicide-sniper-sniping-life.html?spref=fb
It has become a useful tool in sending many people to great beyond aside the health hazard it poses for anyone who comes into contact with it.
The latest victim left a suicide note saying that she has failed to meet a dateline for the registration of an elective course.
In the note she said, “I will not apply for course suspension my academics is all I live for, if I can’t get it right, f**k existing.”
The student, Sarah Imoleaya Ighidabo, from Edo State, failed an elective course unit in the faculty of sciences after missing examinations and was made to repeat the course. Ms Ighidalo had passed all her major courses in Library Science.
But by missing registration of her elective course, meant that she was not enrolled for the course during the semester and had to retake the course next year.
However, on Thursday May 12, 2016, the deceased went to the faculty’s office to see if anything could be done about her case, but she found out that it was too late to make any amends.
Consequently, she became restless, left the office and descended the stairs to where she had kept her bag. There, she was said to have written a suicide note and brought out a container of Sniper insecticide used mostly in driving away soil borne pests and drank it. She left her mobile phone, charger, suicide note, her bag and the container under the staircase and returned to the office.
When she returned to the office, she began to complain of a chest pain and, in no time, she lost her consciousness. She was then rushed to the university clinic.
But the problem was beyond the university clinic and she was taken to AKTH (Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital) and that was where she died.
The registration forms contained her name, registration number (Edu/12/LIS/00195), mode of entry, which is Direct Entry (DE), date of birth (01/01/1970), local government of origin (Etsako East local government) and her state of origin, Edo State.
The forms also contained her home address (Yelwa Television, Kaduna), her marital status, (single) and her next of kin.
Philomena Umoru was stated as her mother’s name. She resides in the same area in Kaduna.
The student’s payment form of N29, 000 in the First Bank of Nigeria, Kuje branch, also contained her phone number and email address.
On the top of the form and at its bottom, a hand writing indicating: “Library & Information Science LIS4205,” was seen.
At the back of one of the two forms, the student wrote a message that read: “I will not apply for course suspension. My academic is all I live for. If I can’t get it right, fuck existing.”
It was also learnt that a similar message was found in her room outside the campus.
