Sympathisers have flooded a Facebook wall of a Nigerian man, Okpani Ugochukwu who died a few hours before his trip to the United Kingdom(UK), for his Master’s academic programme.
Ugochukwu had earlier made a Facebook post on Friday that he would be heading to the UK for his M.Sc which was suspected to be International Relations.
“It’s a wrap. Blessed be God Forever. 22:00Hrs 2go. In Omnia Paratus. Put my name on that wall. MSc mode fully activated. 🛩️✈️✈️🛩️. #International_Relations,” he had written.
Ugochukwu reportedly died in his sleep Saturday morning, as friends posted painful messages of his demise on the Facebook wall they had earlier congratulated him.
