SS1 student commits suicide for failing exam in Kwara

A 17-year-old student of Offa Grammar School in Offa LGA of Kwara State, Adegoke Adeyemi, has committed suicide over his failure to pass his promotion examination.

Adegoke, an SS1 student, was found dangling from a tree behind Ariya Garden Hotel, and policemen later evacuated the corpse.

Confirming the incident, the police spokesman in the state, Ajayi Okasanmi, said the corpse had been taken to the Offa General Hospital for autopsy.

However, he said, “He was believed to have hanged himself as a result of his failure to pass his promotion examination from SS1 to SS2, which necessitated his being asked to repeat the class.”
