Final Year CRUTECH Electrical Engineering Student Electrocuted by Obio4real(m): 11:02am On May 13
By Obio Monday

A final year student of the Department of Electrical Electrical/Electronics, University of Cross River State, formerly CRUTECH, Offiong Joseph Ekott has been electrocuted in Calabar, few months to his graduation.

GRASSROOT REPORTERS gathered that the incident took place on Monday, May 10, at the Nigerian Navy Barracks, Atimbo, Calabar, where the deceased went to carry out some electrical repairs in one of the apartments in the barracks.

A classmate of the deceased told GRASSROOT REPORTERS that the late OJ, as he is fondly called was hale and hearty as of Monday afternoon when they were together in school, only to be told on Tuesday evening when he called to find out why he did not take part in their Continuous Assessment Test on Tuesday that he had passed on.

The late Offiong was said to have fell off the ladder after he was electrocuted. His WhatsApp Status update on Monday afternoon read: "Out for a while, Xoxo".

A close friend of the deceased, Esu Etim Esu expressed sadness of the demise of his close pally.

Speaking to GRASSROOT REPORTERS in an an emotion-ladden voice, Esu said:

"I'm shocked and dumbfounded. This is someone that we were together on Monday afternoon, doing assignments together. We had planned on a big celebration on our graduation day, which is few months from now. Now he is no more!"

Regulatory agencies should ensure that non-certified technicians do not handle high tension cables e.t.c

And Navy personnel should pay their NEPA Bills naaaaaaaaaa

If not for our failed and quack educational system, would this thing ever happen...................This is just a reflection of how decayed our system has gotten to................Spits on Nigeria



Is it not a shame to hear this...............Nigeria is suppose to merge with other countries and not qualified to exist on it's own........

isn't it sympathetic that a computer scientist and ICT graduate in Nigeria cannot install a common software into a PC.............When over here in europe , the first assignment we were given as ICT first year students after our introduction week was to build our own website with HTML and CSS.....Imagine what we would be expected to be doing by the time we reach our finals
