Nasarawa State Police Command is to investigate an attempt by a student of Nasarawa State Polytechnic to commit suicide, spokesman Idrisu Kennedy told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview in Lafia.
NAN reports Chinedu Iromuanya, a National Diploma 2 student in Public Administration department, attempted to commit suicide by drinking an insecticide.
A nurse at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital, Lafia, where Iromuanya was taken to, told NAN he was discharged.
Kennedy said the polytechnic management was yet to report the matter.
“I am just hearing this. I don’t think the authority of the institution has reported the case to the police.
“I will confirm from our officers in charge of the area where the incident occurred, to unravel the reason for the attempted suicide.”
He advised students and workers to report any suspicious person, movement or activity to law enforcement agencies.
The spokesman advised students to be law-abiding and desist from resorting to suicide, no matter the circumstance.
