A final year student of Taraba State University, Dominic George, has reportedly passed away a day before his graduation from the institution.
According to his friends and classmates, who shared the news of his tragic demise on Facebook, Dominic had complained of a fever after completing his exams on Wednesday, July 5, 2023.
Sadly, his condition worsened, and he was unable to attend the final paper scheduled for the following day and ultimately succumbed to the illness.
“He was my course mate. We wrote exams together on Wednesday, and since then, he had been complaining of fever and didn’t show up yesterday for our final paper. Today, we woke up to the news that he was gone. There is no one to question, nothing we can do about it. On Earth, we mourn for you, but the heavenly hosts are glad to receive your soul. May your soul rest in peace, Dominic,” A classmate of the deceased wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.
