UNN first class student, Chukwuemeka Akachi commits suicide kikiotolu

A first class student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), Chukwuemeka Akachi has committed suicide.

Chukwuemeka Akachi who was not just a first class student, but also a final year student, posted a suicide note on Facebook before he killed himself.

According to one of his friends, Akachi consumed two bottles of a poisonous substance and it was the second time he would be attempting suicide in recent times.

Chukwuemeka Akachi had been having a long battle with mental health. His suicide note on Facebook read;

Suicide Note.
Forgive me. In case you are the one who found the body, I am really sorry. It had to be someone, you know. I have chosen Jo Nketaih’s poem as my suicide note: “They said you came looking for me. I didn’t drown; I was the water.” Where do atheists go to when they die? lol. Amen.

According to Michael Chiedoziem Chukwudera, the student was rushed down to the school clinic then UNTH before he gave up the ghost. Chiedoziem Chukwudera wrote;

Chukwuemeka Akachi has died. He attempted suicide yesterday by drinking a poisonous substance. He was rushed to the school clinic and UNTH afterwards, but he, unfortunately did not survive. The most painful thing is that this dude has been talking about suicide (one of the cases which I had an argument with him about his views) , his fears, how he has given up on God and his previous attempts to take his life. This is a most devastating news. Especially painful to me because I am one of the people who has been on his list and have had several arguments with him. But never for once did I reach out. It is too late already. But I pray he finds peace.

Rest in Peace Bro
My heart is heavy 😢😢
