Pandemonium and tears at the weekend enveloped Abraka community in Delta State when a 26-year-old microbiology student of the State-owned University (DELSU) identified as Evelyn Mogekwu allegedly committed suicide after being jilted by her fiancé.
Reports said the end of the seven-year
relationship traumatised the girl as all plans
to walk down the aisle failed to materialise.
Sources said the girl was in high spirits in
her hostel but her mood changed
dramatically and she became dejected after
her fiance called her on phone to declare
that their relationship over.
She was said to have bought some drugs,
claiming she was having a head ache and
went into her room, leaving a message for
roommate that they might not see again.
Few minutes later, her roommate who
sensed something terrible was going on,
raced into the room and found her lying
lifeless on ground. She she raised an alarm
that attracted other students to the room,
but before help came the girl’s way, she had
given up the ghost.
Confirming her death, some senior police
officers at the Abraka Police Division, who
did not want their names in the print, said
they recovered particles of drugs on the
ground beside the deceased, adding that
her roommate is currently being detained
