It was a sad day at the Kwara State University as a lecturer at the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture, Kwara State University, Malete, Dr. Solomon Osunlola, committed suicide.

The Director of the institute’s Public Relations Department, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan, who confirmed the incident on Friday in Ilorin, said that the deceased was a Lecturer 1 with the College of Agriculture.

He said that Osunlola joined the services of the institution on a full-time appointment in 2010.

“However, during staff verification, it was discovered that Osunlola retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.

“But, in spite of this discovery, the university, in August 2017, converted Osunlola’s appointment to a contract engagement on compassionate grounds,” he said.

Sources indicated that the school had conveyed its conversion of Osunlola’s appointment to him via a letter signed by the Registrar.

The sources, however, said that the loss of his full-time status led to a steady decline in Osunlola’s mental stability as he became depressed and “started misbehaving”.

“One of his friends even offered to assist him to secure a job at Landmark University, but the deceased did not submit his credentials when he was asked.

“Another friend also took him to a cleric for prayers and counselling after noticing that he was depressed,” the sources added.

A family source said that relations broke the deceased’s door when he did not come out in the morning on Friday where they discovered that he that he had committed suicide.

Yorubas and suicide go hand in hand. Good a thing he did not jump inside the Lagoon like the Oba of Lagos advised them to.
