Ebuka Joshua, a 300-level student at Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Anambra State, is said to have committed himself owing to academic pressure.
Ebuka was believed to have struggled with depression since the start of the semester owing to his failure to keep up with his schoolwork.
A few days before the tragic tragedy, the deceased had confided in a friend about his situation.

bestdressednigerians – The pressure and stigmatization by the society on drop-outs is just too much, more of this will keep happening until we realize that school is not for everybody 💔
evelyn____xx – I will do my best and graduate, anyone that wants flying colours should come and paint the result 🙏
mc_jessecfr – This is sad! Please if you’re still in school, just try to graduate, leave flying colors for LGBTQ 🙏🏼
nnenna_blinks_ – This is so sad . Never bow to pressure whether it’s from family or friends. Work at your own pace. Discover your abilities. School isn’t for everyone. If it’s not moving look for another thing you are good at . We are all good at something. Most of this billionaires are dropouts. They invested in their talent. Nothing is worth your precious life please
teel0_8 – Now everyone is asking why not quit… y’all think it’s easy … just dropping out from school… the societal mockery , parents feeling disappointed… it’s really not easy to quit… most people just want to finish what they’ve started … studying in Nigeria is draining
