A 300 level student of Computer Science, Imo state University, Owerri, Jennifer Agomuo, has taken her own life after stabbing her boyfriend identified as Johnson.
The two were described as lovebirds by their close friends and were always together in the campus and social gatherings before the late Jennifer started suspecting the boy friend of cheating on her.
The tragedy occurred in one of the hostels within the Aladinma Alliance area of the school last night.
According to a source, “a student of our school has taken her own life. She was studying computer science and was supposed to graduate in 2019.She was in third year.
“She poisoned herself after stabbing her boyfriend. She had thought that she had killed her boyfriend and out of fear she ran to her hostel and drank the poison and took her own life.
“Her boyfriend who was rushed to Federal Medical Center, Owerri, did not die, he is recuperating. She ate the poisonous substance out of fear that she had killed her own boyfriend”.
The source added that, “this is tragic. It is highly absurd. It is regrettable because this kind of thing is what we watch in movies. Her remains have been evacuated to the mortuary”.
