The police command in Benue on Friday said one Terhemba Tyochivir died by suicide on Thursday in Makurdi, the state capital.
The state police public relations officer, SP Sewuese Anene, confirmed the incident through a text message.
She said before his death, he was a student at Government Secondary School, Gboko.
Ms Anene said the details of the incident remained sketchy even though it was reported at the E Division Police Station, Makurdi.
She said the deceased was rushed to Bishop Murray Hospital Makurdi, where doctors confirmed him dead.
Efforts to talk to the deceased’s father, Kula Tyochivir, proved abortive as he insisted on speaking another time.
