A Nigerian Catholic priest had passed away in far away Chicago in the US, leaving his friends, colleagues and well wishers in lament. The deceased identified as Rev. Father Collins Ekpe - was the parish priest of St. Kizito Catholic Church in Kuje area in Abuja from 2008-2013 before he relocated to America to study. 

According to Jacob Ugwuoke, a friend and classmate of the late priest, Father Collins died after he went into his room in Chicago to study and never came out alive. 

The real cause of his death is yet to be ascertained as some have attributed it to illness. 

Jacob Ugwuoke who is based in Illinois, Chicago, took to Facebook to share the sad news. He wrote; 

He is a class mate and a priest friend. We woke up Sunday morning to hear that he went into his room and never came out alive in Chicago where he was studying. Please pray for the happy repose of his soul. Tears in my eyes.
May his soul rest in peace.

I remember back then in 2009 when I received my first holy Communion, during the exam father Collins asked me just one question which I'll never forget: during consecration, what's the process whereby the unleavened bread and wine is turned into the body and blood of Christ, and I replied transubstantiation.

I had a 63% despite not knowing why I couldn't get a 90 because that's the only question he asked me.

He was a strict priest who doesn't mind scolding a defaulting mass servant even during the course of his service: I've witnessed where he knelt down or slapped a mass servant.

I revered but still feared him that year.

So unfortunate he's gone; rip father Collins.

You probably needed to buttress your point, so as to get a higher score. At least you've passed

An IGBOman managed to get on a plane and a foreign airport and no one is checking his stomach for hidden drugs?

Open him up for autopsy and check his stomach!
