Photos 29 year old Poly student commits suicide in Kebbi stateA 29-year-old  student of Waziri Umaru Federal Polytechnic, Birnin-Kebbi, and resident of Badariya area identified as Solomon Benedict, has committed suicide over his financial plight. According to reports, Benedict allegedly mixed some substances believed to be insecticide with yogurt and drank it. His friends were unable to rescue him until his condition became worse.  Speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, one of his friends said:“We noticed he was no longer at ease. He was holding his tummy and we later learnt that he pour some insecticide into his drink. He died before we could stop him.” It was gathered that Solomon died as his friends were rushing him to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.  A female friend of the deceased in Jega town, also said"For some time now, he had been telling me he would kill himself if his financial situation did not improve. But I never believed he meant it. I remember whenever he visited me at Jega, he always lamented over his financial predicament and I would give him some money to transport himself back to Birnin Kebbi and thereafter he would tell me he would kill himself one day if his situation failed to improve. I was shocked when a friend called me from Sokoto that Solomon had killed himself.” Kebbi State Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Nafiu Abubakar,  confirmed the incident to newsmen on Tuesday“Yes, we are aware of the incident. The boy was 29 years old. He committed suicide at Badariya area of Birnin Kebbi" he said. Meanwhile, a friend, James Peters took to Facebook to mourn the deceased. He wrote:"God!!!!!! This life is very short… We can't ask God why, You re the all knowing God, you knw best, only You Lord knw wat he was passing through. We beseech dat lord u have mercy on his soul, plz don't look at the wrongs he has Don whole still on earth….
