Mass Failure in WAEC Results Latest: 2 students commit suicide in Delta State

The recently released results by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) have claimed lives in Delta State. Two female students that failed their exams yesterday allegedly committed suicide in Asaba, the state capital.

Reports said the students committed suicide after checking their result on the internet and discovered that it was unfavourable to them.

Sources said the victims had written the exams three times without passing their Maths and English Language, which led them to allegedly resolve to commit suicide.

Some persons who spoke to newsmen on condition of anonymity confirmed that the students had struggled to gain admission into the University in the last few years without success.

Police sources at the “B” Division Asaba said the students were allegedly found dead in their various rooms after a search party that was conducted.
