Suicide: UNIBADAN Don Sets Self Ablaze In His Apartment


LAGOS APRIL 7TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The University of Ibadan community has been thrown into mourning session following the sudden death of one of its staff.
The lecturer, Dr O. A. Subair, of the Department of Mathematics, reportedly committed suicide.
The university don set himself on fire on Monday afternoon in his senior staff quarters located at Phillipson Road of the University.
He has been buried at Akinyele public cemetery. It was gathered that the late lecturer had recently resigned from the university without a justifiable reason but was yet to pack out of the staff quarters before he took his life.
It was further gathered that the late Subair is facing separate challenges with his family and academic progress.
Confirming the incident in a telephone Chat, Chairman Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Deji Omole described the incident as pathetic and a major loss to the Union.
Omole said the Union was only informed of the burning flat while efforts to save him proved abortive.
Omole urged members of the Union to confide in one another saying isolation could deepen depression which may culminate in suicidal ideation.
Subair was survived by a wife and three children.
