A JAMB candidate simply identified as Loveth has reportedly committed suicide after failing her JAMB exams, in Ekiugbo, Ughelli North local government area of Delta State.

The University admission-seeker, who was said to be displeased with the 168 mark she garnered in the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), was found dead at her home on Wednesday morning.

It was gathered that the deceased, who picked medicine as her choice of study, took three bottles of Sniper as these were found by her side yesterday morning.
