A final-year student of Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra, has committed suicide.

The victim reportedly took his life on Friday because his girlfriend jilted him.

According to a source, the young man who’s identity is yet to be revealed, took sniper after his lover allegedly told him to look for another girl.
