With a disheartening heart, A 100-level Business Administration student of University of Lagos (UNILAG), Ariyibi Ayomide has reportedly taken her own life after she was shamed publicly by her roommates.
The Employee Relations and Human Resources Management major had been accused of taking makeup kits and clothes that didn’t belong to her. Her roommates had then taken it up against her calling her all sorts of names to shame her. Some other residents of her hostel had reportedly joined in the shaming as she was led away by her mother after the issue had been resolved.
However, on getting home, she reportedly drank a bottle of popular insecticide, sniper to take her own life.
One Ajani Damilola, who is also a student of the university narated the story on her Facebook page
Ayomide death occur after an incident that happened in her room (Amina Hostel) which involved the missing of belongings (which includes make up and clothes) of another girl in the same room.
On Thursday, some of the belongings of her fellow room mate was found in Ayomide’s bag ( scattered in three different bags – make up in one of of her bag, clothes in another bag and clothes in another bag making 3 of Ayomide’s bag).
As a result, the roommates disgraced Ayo and called her many names (relating to a thief) and disgraced her publicly. Ayomide called her mum and her mum came down next day (Friday) to settle the issue.
The make up was valued at #2000 in which Her mum paid. After that, her mum told her to pack her bags and follow her home which she did but as she was going the room mates shouted on her and called her so many names.
Her mum took her home and went back to work (her mum is a unilag staff). Ayomide was the only one left at home when she took sniper to put end to her depression in the afternoon.
Her mum came back in d evening and saw her child in a critical state. So she asked what happened to her; Ayomide just stretched her hand to do bottle of the sniper she took.
Immediately her mum gave her palm oil (epo in yoruba) but results were not forthcoming. So she rushed her to a medical centre at ebute metta, still results were not favourable, she was then taken to Luth (Medilag).
Ayomide left this sinful world yesterday around 7pm.
REST IN PEACE AYOMIDE!!!!
