A 28-year-old Nigerian student allegedly committed suicide after jumping off the second floor of his rented accommodation in Sector 41. No one was certain why he committed suicide, but police say preliminary probe suggests that the deceased was in depression, the Times of India reports.

Kelvin Lakoju, aka ‘Biggie’ had been living in Noida since 2009 and was pursuing a photography course from an institute in Film City. Cops said he jumped off the building on Wednesday night, January 2nd, around 11pm.

“We have questioned some people and came to know that he was upset for some reasons,” said deputy SP, S Chinappa.

“His friends said Kelvin was good at studies. Some personal problem could be the reason for committing suicide,” said a senior police officer.

While some allege that Kevin was pushed, others say he was killed then pushed. The Nigerian Embassy and the deceased’s family have been informed about the incident.
