Jamima Shetima Balami, a young female student at Adamawa State’s Federal Polytechnic Mubi, is said to have committed suicide.

The 24-year-old was a National Diploma II Mass Communication student who was about to complete her Industrial Training (IT) at Adamawa Television (ATV) in Yola when she died.

Balami, who came from Garkida Gombi, was reportedly found dead at her residence in Vinikilang, also known as Hayin Gada, in the Girei Local Government Area of the state.

It is believed that she ingested a substance suspected to be rat poison.

According to reports, Balami’s boyfriend, said to be a university lecturer, asked her to end their relationship, which may have been a contributing factor to her decision to take her own life.

The father of the deceased reported the matter to the police, and the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Suleiman Yahaya Nguroje, confirmed the incident to Daily Trust on Monday.

He explained that the matter had been reported in two different versions, but the police have promised to investigate the matter thoroughly to determine the true cause of the young woman’s death.
