Reason Why 19 Years Old Female Student Commits Suicide

A 19-year-old female student of Dyege Memorial College, Akpehe, in Makurdi, Benue State, Jessica Beer, on Wednesday allegedly committed suicide after her boyfriend left her and impregnated another girl.

A close friend of the victim who did not want her name in print told our correspondent that Jessica killed herself because her boyfriend, one Labi, left her for another girl.

The friend added that Jessica had vomited blood and fallen from the bed to the ground.
She said, “The previous night, my friend (Jessica) had brought a sharp knife to my house, and had asked me to accompany her to the boyfriend’s house, with the threat that she would deal with the boy. But I advised her not to do anything rash.”

Our correspondent gathered that when her parents discovered her body, they rushed her to Yiman Hospital, Akpehe, where doctors confirmed that she had died about 30 minutes earlier.

The Chief Nurse at the hospital, Mrs. Atser Terkimbi, said when Jessica was brought to the hospital, she was foaming in the month as a result of the substance she allegedly took, which claimed her life.

When our correspondent visited Dyege Memorial College, Akpehe, where Jessica was said to be a student, her classmates and her teachers openly discussed the circumstances that led to her death.

The school’s proprietress, Mrs. Mercy Dyege, expressed shock, describing Jessica’s action as “barbaric, uncalled for and ungodly.”
Mrs. Dyege added, “This kind of incident has never occurred in my school and I condemn this behaviour in strong terms.”
Jessica’s class teacher, Mr. Timothy Tyoyange, described her as an average student who seemed interested in learn.
Tyoyange said, “Jessica was a beautiful young girl and in our last speech, prize and graduation day, she contested for the Miss Dyege organised by the college and won the crown.”

When contacted, the Benue State Command Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, confirmed the incident, saying investigations have commenced.
