The aggrieved students said AAU had promised to clear the backlog of results and mobilise students for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
A source said the university’s refusal to issue Ogbeide his result got him frustrated and he decided to end his life over the matter.
“The mother told me that he just stood up all of a sudden with a bottle and smashed it on the floor. They told me it was a slip. But he started to pierce his neck and body with the pieces of the broken bottle.
“It was the efforts of his relative present at the time of the incident that overpowered him before he was rushed to the hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.
However, the Head of Corporate Communications and Protocol, Mike Aladenika, said the affected students might have had issues with some courses during their time in school.
