Professor Frank Onyezili of the Biological Sciences Department in the Federal University of Agriculture in Makurdi (FUAM) has allegedly committed suicide. 

Our correspondent gathered that the late Onyezili took his own life at the weekend by drinking a substance suspected to be poison after leaving behind a suicide note.

It was learnt that the deceased’s decision to end his own life might not be unconnected with depression and loneliness which he was believed to have suffered lately because his family (wife and children) are said to be living abroad.

A colleague of the deceased who wouldn’t want his name on print, alleged that the family of Onyezili had abandoned him and that could have been the reason he decided to end it all.

The Director of Protocol and Information of the university, Mrs Roseline Waku, confirmed the incident but said she was not privy to the information contained in the suicide note.

When contacted, the Police Spokesman of the Benue Command, DSP Moses Joel Yamu, said he was yet to get the detail of the incident at the time of this report.
