A serving corps member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Uzochukwu Chinevu has passed away.
The 29-year-old Enugu State University Technology (ESUT) slumped and died on September 17, while playing basketball in Zamfara State, where he was undergoing his one year compulsory national service.
He will be laid to rest in his hometown, Igbo-Etiti, Enugu State on Monday, September 25.
His friend Ejiofor Emmanuel, confirmed the sad news on Facebook, writing:
“What else cannot happen in this world?,,,if UZO whom served as a president in Association of Applied Biology and Biotechnology, Esut chapter last year and left for NYSC this year can easily be embraced by the cold hands of Death.
I won’t forget the fact that he never stopped smilling and giving people advice.
My dear UZO, I still remember vividly how we worked together, how you toiled tirelessly during your campaign for presidency and I came to ask myself whether am hallucinating or it is real that you are gone. What else do I wish you than to say “rest peacefully in the bosom of our lord”.
