Aisha Omolola, a 300 Level student in ABU took her own life today.
She reportedly took poison “Sniper” earlier today in her apartment at Samaru which immediately took her life. She left a suicide note attached to her body bidding farewell to her friends and loved ones.
Innalillahi wa Inna illahir raji’un!!! Ya Allah, forgive her and grant her Jannah. Ya Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim.
Sad! May her soul Rest in Peace. However, this highlights the rising case of mental health in higher education which calls for interventions that build resilience like student counselling unit, help point, union, Chaplain services, personal tutor, mentoring, peer mentoring, etc.
