Before his death, Adams was said to have visited his department in the evening to submit an assignment after which he went back home. Some of his friends tried to contact him without success and then went to his house. They contacted his relatives who broke the door of his home and found his dangling corpse.
The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Michael Osasuyi, who confirmed the incident, said the student’s death came as a surprise to the university community.
“His father came to see him and that was how it was discovered that he hung himself. The information that got to us was that he was a bright student, a first-class material,” he said.
His remains have been deposited in the University's morgue.
