As Sokoto State Coordinator of National Youths Service Corps, Musa Abubakar, announced the demise of a corps member, Ochayi Christian Adoba, the deceased friends took to their Facebook pages to recall the moments they shared together.
Adoba, who hailed from Benue and died from heart failure on April 1, was one of the 1,411 corps members deployed to Sokoto State under the 2016 batch “A”, Stream One.
“The late corps member was serving at the Government Secondary School, Tsamaye, Sabon-Birni Local Government in the state. He was resting after a football match between the various batches of the scheme, suddenly he just collapsed and died,” the coordinator said during the passing out parade on Friday.
Recalling the moments they shared together in Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, where the deceased graduated from, a Facebook user, Maxwell Ochayi, wrote: “We all know how we started, the stress of going to lectures on empty stomach, the stress of going to night class trying to get things up there.
