Chukwuemeka Akachi, a first class student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN has reportedly committed suicide after a long battle with mental health.
yans gathered that Akachi, a final year student of English and Literary Studies consumed two bottles of a poisonous substance and died at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku Ozalla, where he was rushed to.
It is also believed that Akachi had a long battle with mental health before he committed suicide and this was confirmed in one of his social media posts prior to his death.
His suicide note on facebook reads: “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.”
In one of his previous posts on Facebook, he wrote on his battle with mental health and how it has affected his growth, he shared,
“My mental health has been on life support for a while now. Thanks to those who call. Text. Visit. Speak to me. May we always remember. May we never forget. You may have added a few hours, months or days to my time here. But you know life support is expensive, right? Thanks for trying. Amen.”
