The President of the Radiography Students’ Association, Anonde Stephen, confirmed the sad news in a statement on Monday, January 2, 2023.
“Until the time of his death, he was in the 500 level class waiting to sign out very soon. It’s a very sad loss for all,” the statement read.
“We sympathize with the bereaved and urge all to remember the family in prayers as we grief and mourn this great loss. Rest easy Godson.”
