A 20-year-old senior secondary school student, Moji A., died on Wednesday in Omu-Aran, Kwara, after taking poison.

The deceased, an SSS1 student died at Adeyemo Hospital in the town due to complications in her body system as a result of the poison.

The girl was rushed to the hospital by her mother, Abigail, about three weeks ago.

The deceased was said to have taken poisonous substance after she failed her promotion examination.

“It was the deceased’s sister who first gave us the clue to her sickness before she later confessed to the act at the hospital,” Abigail told NAN at her residence on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the deceased was initially taken to Christ Apostolic Church, Ori-Oke Irapada, along Omu-Aran-Ilofa Road for prayers and deliverance.

The prophet in-charge of the church, Christopher Owolabi, said a prayer team was quickly organised for the deceased, before she was taken to the private hospital for treatment.

It was at the hospital that she died.

    I blame our education and health system. I’m pretty sure she had a learning disability that was never adressed. I’m sure she was smacked multiple times by parents and teachers and called names like olodo. I once met a 30 yr old female in primary 5. She had a very small stature and could have easily passed for 12. They just kept her there year after year and made her feel worthless. Poor lady had down syndrome that was never addressed. People with dyslexia and adhd have no sorta help in naija. Are we not tired of corruption? Just wish people will wake up and be like F this, let’s return all stolen funds and build Nigeria.
