Police Investigate Death of Arabic Student, 22, in Ilorin


The Kwara State Police Command has commenced an investigation into the death of a 22-year-old Arabic student, simply identified as Alfa Musa, who reportedly committed suicide in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital recently

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ejire Adetoun Adeyemi, who confirmed the incident said that investigation has commenced into the incident.

According to the spokesperson of the police, the deceased student said in a suicide note “To my mum and dad, I am sorry, I did this because God did not answer my prayers, I would rather die than sin, please, forgive me, I love you, bury me at home.”

Musa said to be a student of Sheikh Kamaldeen Arabic school, Ilorin, was found hanging in his room at the Dagbenu compound in the Ogidi area of Ilorin on December 7, 2023.

Reports said one of his friends paid a visit to his residence on the day of the incident, but found the door to his room locked.

“After repeated knocks on the door, there was no response, yet he was in the room, hence the door was forced open and the deceased was found hanging.

“An empty paint container which he allegedly used to hang himself was also found in his room.”

It was gathered that when the incident occurred the deceased’s father was contacted but he directed that the late Musa be buried in Ilorin against the wish of the deceased as contained in the suicide note he left behind.

One of his neighbours in the area described the deceased who hails from Osun state as comfortable and a devout Muslim.
