The student identified as Bamidele Damilare, who was a Business Administration student of the Lagos State Polytechnic, Isolo, has died after drinking a poisonous substance.
According to reports, Bamidele Damilare went into depression after one Mr. Pears, the school’s course coordinator, insulted him over his inability to pay his tuition.
He allegedly took a substance called Sniper after he was frustrated and harassed for the debts.
His colleagues allegedly protested over his death yesterday, 31st of July.
The coordinator, Mr Pears, who was accused of frustrating the student however, rebuffed that Damilare’s death was none of his business. Security operatives were later called in to fend off the students.
