Unconfirmed reports say that 18 fresh graduates of the Imo State University, Owerri have died in a ghastly motor accident. They were said to be travelling to Taraba State, when tragedy struck.
The corps members were said to be part of the Batch A, NYSC orientation camp.
From what we gathered, the students received their call up letters late Thursday evening and proceeded to embark on the journey to meet up the registration deadline.
At press time, the identities of the victims could not be ascertained. While we await an official statement, one cannot help but question why they did not receive their call up letters early. Eighteen good lives wasted after suffering to meet up with their tuition, what explanation will the Vice Chancellor, Prof. B.E.B Nwoke, have for their parents?
Oh Jesus ! May their souls rest in Peace.
