A female Nigerian student in Ukraine has committed suicide after failing her final year exams.  Rafiat Ololade Badmus was allegedly frustrated by the academic staff at Ternopil State Medical University in Ukraine who had refused to provide the basic support and help to enable her graduate from her medical degree.

The incident leading to her suicide was narrated by a friend below:

“On Wednesday she had a pediatrics exam to take, she did well but they refused to pass her because she didn’t pass her prekrok which is a mock exam in preparation for the final mbbs and is totally unheard of because the prekrok is a mock exam that can be taken as many times as possible till you’re ready to take the main exam which is the final mbbs.

She went to the deans office to beg, she knelt down and cried, we all pleaded but they said they wouldn’t help us. So we decided to start the transfer process to a different school which is what everyone does when they’re expelled, so as to take the final exam in a different school. .

We requested for her transcripts so we can start the process but they refused to give it to us, they said she should go back to Nigeria and reapply for the visa. Mind you, this is nonsense because you have the right to transfer to another school when you’re expelled from yours. All you need to do is transfer your credit and get your transcript from your school and then transfer but they refused to let her transfer. .

Yesterday, we went back there and pleaded and they refused, which caused my friend to believe that all hope was lost. She was being expelled in final year with no hope to continue somewhere else. She left a suicide note and killed herself yesterday. .

Now the school is denying ever expelling her. They even put up a post in the middle of the school stating that. They’re saying she killed herself because she was depressed and suicidal. My friend was fine, they killed her. Nothing we do can bring her back but we need a reform!!! Her death can’t be in vain.”

May God have mercy on her soul.
