Update: How 300 Level Female UNIBEN Student Committed Suicide (Photos)

A 300-level Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) female student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), has taken her own life, Igbere TV can report.

The girl whose name was given as Christabel Buoro, took substances believed to be snipper on Tuesday at her off-campus hostel in Ekosodin, Igbere TV reports.
Contrary to media reports that Miss Buoro died as a result of heartbreak, preliminary investigation showed that her death has nothing to do with sour relationship.
The deceased left a note which suggested that she must have died as a result of depression.
The deceased had asked whoever that saw the note to “hold” two ladies (names withheld) responsible, citing “irreconcilable differences” as reasons for her actions.
According to the letter, she only took to suicide as last resort and to prove a point.
Igbere TV gathered that it was the deceased neighbours who alerted men of the Nigeria Police, BDPA-Ugbowo division, when several attempts to reach her proved abortive.
A bottle of the sniper she took was however seen beside her body, our source added.
As at 7:15 pm when our news crew visited the scene, a police van was seen recovering the body from her apartment to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) morgue.
When contacted for comments, Spokesman for the University of Benin, Mr. Michael Osasuyi, confirmed the development. He however said he was yet to be officially briefed about the incident.
“It is unfortunate that we lost one of our students. We sympathize with the deceased family most especially the MLS department,” Osasuyi added.
A police source said investigation into the incident had begun, adding that the deceased family would want their privacy respected “for now.”
“The two ladies (whose names were listed in the suicide note) have been invited for questioning, they are currently in our custody, that is all I can tell you for now,” the police source said, adding, “her (the deceased) family wouldn't want any detail in public now until investigation had been concluded.”
A friend of the deceased, who did not want her name in print due to the nature of the incident, said the late student had attempted suicide after she was reportedly raped in 100-level.
She said, “I can boldly say her death has nothing to do with heartbreak. Christy has been secretly dealing with depression, she doesn't talk she is the secretive type. But she had once attempted suicide in 100-level by taking overdose paracetamol after she was ‘raped’.”
The rate of suicides involving students has been on the increase of recent, from Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Ibadan to Lagos State Polytechnic.
The latest incident comes barely a year after Adams, a 500-level student of the Department of Computer Engineering of the University of Benin, was found dangling from the roof of his apartment at Ekosodin Community in Ovia North-East Local Government Area of Edo State.

You never know till you walk in a man (or woman's) shoes.
We don't know the full details yet but some reference is being made to this young woman being a rape victim. If indeed that was the case then it may explain why she chose to take her own life.
Rape and other forms of sexual assault deliver a deadly strike at the victim's sense of self worth in a way that most of us will simply not be able to comprehend.
So while it is true that life is no picnic and some people need to toughen up, we need to understand that some scars never heal.
RIP Christabel.

Some people would start castigating the poor lady when they don't know what it takes to be depressed. And majority of the people abusing her can never last a day of core depression. In fact, the disease is more than the name it's called.
Depression that, at times it comes like a spiritual attack, it only takes the help of God to conquer it.
Although taking one's life is not an option but sincerely its not an easy thing

You this boy, I can see you are back.
Yes, it can be avoided if such men use their heads and not dicks.

Honestly, the girl child is often a target in our high institutions... Wish there are legislations protecting them a bit.
The lectures,cult boys,lesbians, even Jews target them...if I catch you near my daughter eh blood go flow oh nonsense angryangryangry

Next time you call me a boy, you’ll pay dearly for it.

Seriously i don't know if this the new trend in town.
It's happening everyday in Nigeria now and it's just unfortunate that not all of them barely makes in to the news headlines on social media.
Just last week one Jumia delivery agent in sapele road Benin city killed him self because he was sacked.
We need to find a solution to this issue before it gets out of hand.
