A yet-to-be named student of University of Benin (UNIBEN), has attempted suicide after her boyfriend reportedly jilted her.

The incident occurred on Wednesday in Ekosodin Community behind Ugbowo Campus of the institution in Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State.
The young lady believed to be about 21-year-old who screamed, alas, attracted neighbours who came to her rescue.
Another student simply identified as Lauretta, post on social Media said, “the girl had previously threatened to kill herself”.
Contacted, the Public Relations office of the University of Benin, Dr. (Mrs.) Benedicta Ehanire, declined comment.
