A final year student of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) has left many people in shock after committing suicide.

Adesoji Adediran, a 500-level student of Urban and Regional Planning Department hanged himself in the school’s hostel on Saturday.

His roommates, who had been away for a night study, returned in the morning to find his corpse dangling from the ceiling.

The school management was said to have been alerted. They then informed policemen from the Owode division, who removed the remains.

The corpse was said to have been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

The police took statements from the roommates, which were later withdrawn by the deceased’s parents, who insisted on not pursuing any case due to the nature of the death.
