Frank Onyezili, a Professor of Biological Science with the Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi, has committed suicide, Punch Metro reports.
It was learnt that the don who left a note behind might have killed himself over family problems.
A source from the institution told Punch Metro that the aged professor at a time complained of being abandoned by his family.
The source said, “One thing I noticed is that the don had been complaining of not having adequate care and he was aging.”
The Director of Information of the institution, Chief Mrs Waku Roseline, confirmed the unfortunate incident and added that the police should be in possession of the suicide note.
Waku said Professor Frank Onyezili committed suicide on Friday last week at FUAM.
When contacted, the police spokesman, DSP Moses Yamu, said he was not aware of the incident.
