The Management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has received with great shock the painful and sudden demise of one of our students, Francis Chinedu Mmadubuobi, a 400 level student of the Department of Applied Microbiology and Brewing. The deceased slumped while playing basketball with friends on Saturday July 21, 2018.
The deceased was quickly rushed to the University medical Centre but had no pulse upon examination. This means that he had died before being brought to the University Medical Centre. He was thereafter taken to Teaching Hospital Amaku for further attempt at salvaging an already bad situation. He was without pulse and confirmed dead.
The Management is deeply saddened at the unfortunate incident and appeals for calm among the students.
We pray for the repose of the soul of Chinedu Mmadubuobi and for God to grant the family and friends the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
May his gentle soul find solace in the bossom of our Lord, Amen
Dr. Emmanuel Ojukwu
Director, Information, Public Relations and Protocol,
