A very sad news reaching us from Times of India, is that a 28year old Nigerian student allegedly committed suicide after jumping off the second floor of his rented accommodation in Sector 41. The Indian Police said that the deceased, Kelvin Lakoju, who is popularly known as Biggie was in depression. (do Nigerians commit suicide?)
Kelvin Lakoju had been living in Noida since 2009 and was pursuing a photography course from an institute in the Film City. The indian police said he jumped off around 11pm on Wednesday 2nd January 2013.
The deputy SP, S Chinappa said and we quote.
“We have questioned some people and came to know that he was upset for some reasons,
” His friends said Kelvin was good at studies. Some personal problem could be the reason for committing suicide,” said another senior police officer.
However, other sources said Kelvin Lakoju was killed and then pushed from his second floor apartment.
The Nigerian Embassy and Kelvin Lakoju’s family have been informed about the incident. We are hoping that the Nigerian authorities in India will do thorough investigation into the alleged suicide, and come out with the truth. We are waiting for them to conclude if it is really a suicide.
Rest in Peace Kelvin Lakoju.
