Undergraduate Reportedly Kills Self Over Poor Grades...

A 16-year old 100-level student of Microbiology at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Mercy Afolaranmi, has committed suicide. According to the school’s Chief Security Officer, Babatunde Oyatokun, Miss Afolaranmi, poisoned herself.





Students and a neighbour close to the deceased also said she killed herself due to poor grade. Her neighbour, Bimpe Oni, said Miss Afolaranmi, who lived off-campus at Sabo area of Ile-Ife, died on Thursday, after she took “rat poison mixed with battery extract.” Mrs. Oni said the late student committed suicide because of “emotional pressure.”


A student, Aisha, who was Miss Afolaranmi’s colleague in the Faculty of Science, said the deceased had ‘E’ in CHM101 (Chemistry for first year students), a reportedly dreaded course for year one students in the science and technology related faculties. Mercy often isolated herself in class and looked depressed. Another student in the Faculty of Student, Opeyemi, said “she took poison because of result.”


The school’s Dean of Students’ Affairs, Isiaka Aransi, also confirmed the death of Miss Afolaranmi. Although the reason and cause of her death is yet to be known, the division is aware of the death of Mercy. Her body has been taken to hospital for autopsy. When the result is out, the university community shall be communicated.


Before her death, on October 10, she posted on Facebook that: “Above all other things, I just wanna see God, see what He looks like, speak with Him face to face. I don’t wanna miss heaven. LORD HELP ME.”

Will you see the Lord or smell heaven? Why take a life you didn't create. If poor grades you drop out and do other things with your life. Suicide is becoming rampant in this Buhari era. IS SOMEONE THINKING ALONG THIS LINE!!!!

The mental pressure killed her. Psychological depression is a bad thing. Parents need to stop forcing their children to do what they aren't ready for., @16, she's still too young to live alone off-campus. it almost happened to me in 100level when I had low g.p but I forged on, read more, attended more tutorials & things turned around. either ways, suicide shouldn't be the best option. I blame her parents in all these.

It's so sad. I'm so sure she was under pressure.At 16,she should be on a total vacation. travelling and discovering new things but we depend so much on formal education that we forget to consider things. In America there's a compulsory one year break after high school to travel and relax.

Only God knows what pressure Mercy's parents had asserted on her to have ended up taking poison as a last resort. The story said she "isolated her self and lived off campus" - That is a red flag that are parents must have been aware about. but decide to do nothing.

Not all parents are loving towards their children and it's sad to say that Mercy had to end up this way. Suppressed emotions and depression is death waiting to happen. RIP Mercy
