SAD LOSS: 400 Level Ebonyi University student hangs self !!!
Vanguard investigations revealed that his neighbours became suspicious after they did not see him for some time and alerted the Police who came and forced his room open to discover his dangling
A neighbour who spoke with Vanguard noted that the late Micheal Onwe had spent over 6 years in the University, first as a Medical student, but was offered an alternative course in Medical Laboratory in the same institution after failing twice in his MB examination.
According to him, late Onwe was a native of Umuogodoshe in Mgbo town, Ohaukwu local government area of Ebonyi State. He disclosed that the deceased had before his death alleged threat to his life by a secret cult group, a report which was made to his parents and to security agencies for investigation.
Police Public Relations Officer, Ebonyi State command, ASP John Eluu who confirmed the incident, said the body has been deposited at the Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki for an autopsy. He added that the Police had commenced investigations into the matter with a view to unraveling the cause of his death.
The PPRO also said all evidence at the moment points to suicide as cause of death but said the Police was yet to ascertain why Onwe took his own life as he did not leave any note behind. "The issue is that he committed suicide and the cause has not been known as he did not leave any suicide note behind."
