A freshman at the University of Lagos has committed suicide as a result of a shaming incident by her roommates.
The Employee Relations and Human Resources Management student, identified as Ariyibi Ayomide, was accused of stealing items that included makeup kits and clothes. Her roommates were said to have called her all sorts of names, which encouraged students from other hostels to join in the shaming.
The victim went home shortly after and reportedly drank ‘Sniper’, a pest control chemical, promptly taking her life.
A student of the same university narrated the incident on her Facebook page, which is captured below:
