According to YabalefOnline.com, the deceased who had tried suicide multiple times consumed illicit drug substances.
His close friends revealed that he was a very brilliant student and attributed his multiple attempted suicide to the rejection from his family after the demise of his mother.
Statement from one of his friends
“His father had abandoned his mother since she was carrying Jude’s pregnancy which later led to his mother’s death out of depression.
“Jude was a very brilliant student and even one of the very best with mastery of languages in the whole of the university campus. Many of us pleaded with him and even referred him to the school counselling unit after the second unsuccessful attempt which was about three weeks ago.
“It came to our surprise that he later proceeded with another attempt around 8:15 pm Wednesday evening. We actually tried to save his life as usual, but to no avail, as he finally gave up the ghost earlier today in the hospital. If he didn’t die, he should have been one of the very best writers of the next generation.” Elijah’s friend told Tribune
