A report reaching us from social media reveals a promising student of the premier university in Nigeria has passed away as a result of prolonged illness.
The Department of Educational Management in the University of Ibadan has been thrown into a state of mourning following the shocking demise of a student due to months of illness which he failed to recover from.
A colleague of the late student made the sad announcement on a popular Nigerian online forum with a touching piece of lamentation directed at students that supported him while he was on his sick bed.
Read his post below:
“With deep regret, I announce the sudden death of a fellow friend, brother, comrade Israel Adeyoju a 400L student of the department of Educational Management, Faculty of Education, University of Ibadan.
He has been ill for months now and was been referred to the University College Hospital, UCH for a surgical operation. Due to the love students had for him, students moved from one hall of residence to another to raise fund to save this bright and promising student.
Thanks for the money
Thanks for the prayer
Thanks for being there
Thanks for everything
You have tried all your possible best preventing Israel from dying
No matter how much money we contribute, only God can save any soul…..
No matter how hard doctors try, only Almighty can heal….
Who are we to blame God for taking him from us?
Who are we to challenge God that what he has done isn’t right?
Who are we to say, “it shouldn’t have been ISRAEL” ?
I was hoping to graduate with my friend …
I was hoping to leave UI without losing any friend….
I was hoping that Israel would get well and join us sooner….”
Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
