TRAGIC!! Student Dies During Choir Practice In FUNAI
“When he died, all things soft and beautiful and bright would be buried with him.” Indeed, Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.
Wisdom Uchenna Ewah, a 200 level student of Federal University Ndufu Alike Ikwo (FUNAI) in Ebonyi State was confirmed dead on 8th July 2017. The young student was getting ready to celebrate his birthday today with friends.
According to some school authorities, he was brought to the university clinic from a choir practice organized in the school with no pulse or sign of life.
He was further rushed to FETHA, a hospital in Abakaliki town where he was confirmed dead.
This is quite strange as it sounds because the boy was so full of life up till 9.30pm last night when he was rushed to the school clinic.
Unfortunately Wisdom was supposed to celebrate his 19th birthday a day before he died. Wisdom is from Afikpo in Ebonyi state. He is a political science student in the Faculty of Management Science in the above named institution.
A source had revealed that Wisdom attended a vigil in Abakaliki on Friday and stood all night. On Saturday he came back to Abakaliki to buy things for his 19th birthday which is supposed to be today. Then he went back, he drank garri and went to observe the choir practice by the fellowship where he collapsed and was confirmed dead on arrival to the school clinic.
We are going to miss your bright spirit
The parents of the deceased are so shocked and are still finding it difficult to accept the fact that their son has gone within the twinkle of an eye. Every student in FUNAI are all sad and moody. This sorrowful occurrence touches the heart of every student gravely who are currently preparing for their exams this month.
Heartbreakingly, this is the fifth death to be recorded by the institution since its inception in 2012 and coincidentally, this is the 3rd from the department of Political Science.
Meanwhile, tributes and memories are pouring in on the student’s social media pages and Facebook.
Rest in peace, dear soul.
