Young Man Who Graduated With First Class After Writing JAMB Six Times Is Dead by owukpa(m): 3:22pm On Aug 12, 2019
Simon Godwin Idoko, the young man, who graduated with First Class degree in Pure and Applied Chemistry from the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto State is dead.

Www.idomavoice.com gathered that Idoko died on Monday at the age of 29 few days after completing his National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.

Idoko was attached to the Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu State, where he served as his Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) in the Chemistry Department as graduate assistant.

The real cause of his death is still sketchy at the moment but sources said his burial is ongoing in his country home, Udaburu Owukpa in Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State.

Speaking on the development, Mr. Emmanuel Odoh, chairman, Udaburu Development Association, Home Branch said the young chemist died Monday morning in Okpokwu LGA after a brief ailment.

“Yes, he died this morning. He’s about to be buried as we speak,” he said amid tears.

Meanwhile, his friends and associates have flooded his Facebook wall with condolences messages.

His childhood friend and kinsman, Ameh Godwin, said he has been sick for days now, but did not give details of the real ailment.

He wrote, “Ogbee! This sounds unbelievable and heartbreaking. You made us proud by graduating with first class after writing UTME (JAMB) six times, today, you have been snatched by the cold hands of death in a mysterious way.

“We spoke few days ago and you promised you were going to be fine. What happened? Is this the 'fine' you assured me? This is sad. What a wicked world.

In April 2018, the Nigerian mediasphere literally went up in flame with the story of a young, resilient and resolute achiever.

Idoko, a native of Udaburu Owukpa, Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State, said his dream of becoming a medical doctor or pharmacist was frustrated after sitting for UTME for five times without success.

Still not discouraged, Godwin decided to apply for a different science-related course and was offered to study Applied Chemistry at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto where he graduated with a first class, garnering a total of 4.75 CGPA.

What a life....

After all the struggle and trying to live up to the world's standards at the end, life's true owner has a different plan.

I don stop to dey wahala myself jare...just taking it one day at a time, sharing love as much as I can when I can and hoping for the best while waiting for my time.

He who created me already has it all figured out...will just allow him take control and steer the ship he has designed.

Make man no go use him own hand dey distort him life in a bid to living up to the Joneses.

Farewell bro...

Life is mysterious, spiritual and beyond human physical understanding.

His star was so much that it attracted so many demons to his life. He ought to have become a highly devoted born again Christian or a diehard voodoo worshipper to be able to win the strong battle on his head, but it seems he was just living a normal life, it is well, journey well brother cry
