Further findings, however, indicated that the management of the polytechnic had yet to report the case to the police station.
When contacted, the Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr. Silas Gyar, said he would not speak to newsmen.
He said: “I cannot speak to newsmen because he is not on my appointment list; so, I don’t have time for him.”
The Nasarawa State Police Command said it would investigate the attempted suicide.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Idrisu Kennedy, made the promise on Wednesday in an interview with PUNCH Metro in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital. Read also: Lagos Police nabs Masquerades for robbing residents
