A final year student of Department of Religion and Culture, University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), Samuel Elias, 25, has allegedly committed suicide by drinking Sniper.
The mother of the deceased, Kate Elias, a staff of the university, told the News agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the unfortunate incident happened on Monday June 17, around 5.30pm in her house at Justina Eze Street, Nsukka.
Mrs Elias said she came back from work on that fateful day and discovered that the mood of her first child was bad and he was staggering when he came to collect a bottle of coke from the fridge.
“I followed him immediately to his room and started talking to him but he could not respond and when I looked closely, I discovered that his teeth had tightened up,” she said.
“As I looked around, I saw an empty sniper bottle; at this point I raised alarm and my other children rushed to the room and we tried to give him red oil but his tightened teeth did not allow the oil to enter his mouth.
“We immediately rushed him to Faith Foundation Hospital, Nsukka and were later referred to Bishop Shanahan Hospital, Nsukka, where he eventually died.”
