Police Probe University Student’s Death Following Alleged Suicide Attempt

Siaya County Police are currently investigating the death of a 25-year-old university student who reportedly attempted suicide in his rented house at Southlands Estate in Siaya town. Laban Onyango, a student at the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology Siaya campus, was pronounced dead at the Siaya County Referral Hospital.

The incident was brought to light when the hospital’s Medical Superintendent, Dr. Michael Oduor, notified Siaya Police Station of a deceased individual brought to their casualty room as an emergency case.

Dr. Oduor promptly informed the station’s officers that Laban’s girlfriend, Sharon Achola, who also attends the Siaya Campus of the same university, had rushed him to the hospital after he attempted suicide by hanging himself with a lesso.

According to Police Commander Cleti Kimaiyo, Sharon recounted that her boyfriend had visited her on Tuesday morning, expressing suicidal thoughts throughout the night and even posting his intentions on Facebook, citing familial pressures.

On Wednesday morning, Sharon found the door locked from the inside after she returned from bathing. She raised an alarm, drawing the attention of neighbours, who discovered Laban hanging with a lesso around his neck after climbing onto the roof.
