It was an atmosphere of gloom, mixed with tears and sadness as students could not hold back their tears from pouring during the candle light procession held in memory of late Okoromadu Timeyin and Maduaka Emmanuel. The procession which started from the campus 3 of the Delta State University, abraka campus, had students in attendance, including members of the Student Union Government, SUG.
The deceased met their demise on Thursday when the bike they boarded on their way to lectures was hit by a Dangote trailer carrying loads of cement bags. The truck had skidded off the road and fell on the bike, killing Emmanuel and Timeyin ( both best friends, 400l students of the department of Economics, Delsu, abraka).
The University Management, on Friday declared a two lecture free days to enable students mourn their departed colleagues. On Monday, students came out with their black on black outfit for a candle light procession in honor of the late colleagues.
Although no amount of tears we share can bring them back, but our prayer is that God recieve their soul and grant them eternal rest where they will not die such a painful death anymore.
