A Zimbabwean student, Elizabeth Choto (27), studying at Cyprus International University (CIU) allegedly committed suicide in her apartment after her Nigerian boyfriend, who is studying at the same institution, impregnated her and denied responsibility. She hanged herself on a bunk bed in her apartment at the institution last Friday.
CIU confirmed the incident through its blog ciuconnect.blogspot.com saying police were still investigating the matter. CIU Nigerian Students’ Union president Ifeoluwa Wole-Wosho also confirmed the tragic incident saying what had happened was regrettable.
Posting on his Facebook page, Wole-Wosho said there was need for Africans in the diaspora to treat each other with respect and as family.
