An 18 years old teenage girl identified as Loveth, in Ekiugbo community, Ughelli North of Delta State, has allegedly committed suicide after finding out she had low scores in the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Loveth had gone to check her JAMB score on Tuesday, where it was discovered that she performed below her expectations in the just concluded exam. She had applied to study Medicine as the course of her choice but scored 160, which is far below the course requirement.
She reportedly started shouting and crying at the centre where she went to check her result that her father will kill her,
It was reported that she drank a poisonous substance known as Sniper which she took from her mother’s provision shop and was found lifeless the next day.
According to the father, he said, she wasn’t scolded for her result but was only told that she can’t be admitted for medicine with that score, she was also told of other options such as polytechnic and so on.
A source who spoke with the Nation reviewed that after her remains were discovered, her parents rushed her to a Pentecostal church at Upper Agbarho for prayers, where she was confirmed dead.
It was gathered that she didn’t show any form of suspicion that she was going to kill herself.
