Tragedy struck on Sunday when a 400-level Mathematics student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, Bashir Abdulalhi, reportedly committed suicide because his girlfriend, one Raf’at, jilted him.

It was gathered that the late student, an indigene of Ungwa Uku Tarauni Local Government Area of Kano State, took the action to protest his girlfriend’s decision to leave him on Valentine’s Day.

It was learnt from campus sources that the victim took his life at his Yalwawa residence, located on the outskirts of the state capital, around 5pm on Monday.

He was reported to have consumed a poisonous substance.

‘’When his friends discovered what happened, they quickly rushed him to the Rasheed Shekoni Teaching Hospital in the state capital, where he was confirmed dead by doctors on arrival.

“On the spot, they promptly contacted the girlfriend, informing her of the death of Abdullahi,” a source said.
