The lifeless body of Christabel, a 300 level Medical Laboratory student of the University of Benin, was on Tuesday found in her hostel room at Newton Street, Ekosodin area of Benin City.

She was said to have ended her life by taking some poisonous substance.

Further checks confirmed that she mixed insecticides, otherwise known as sniper, with a soft drink and left a suicide note, saying she took her life because her lover broke her heart.

An eyewitness who was privy to the sad occurrence disclosed that an empty sachet of Klin detergent was also found on the spot where her body laid.

The police at Ugbowo Police Station have invited two suspected persons in connection with the incidents for questioning.

Describing the nature of her death, the police said the suicide was not due to relationship problems between the deceased and her boyfriend but rather personal unresolved issues between the two persons the letter was addressed to.

“The letter didn’t state what happened between the two mentioned persons, reason the police have invited them to unravel the reasons behind the deceased’s action,” the police stated.
