Corp Member’s death! A graduate of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Adeyemi Ajao, will not be joining fellow Batch A Corps Members during the passing out parade of the National Youth Service Corps in April 2018.
The 27-year-old, who served in the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Umuahia, Abia State, was returned in a body bag to his hometown in Ogbomosho, Oyo State, on Thursday, after he allegedly died from kidney failure.His family members, however, claimed that the graduate of Local Government Studies could not have died from the sickness, saying they suspected foul play.
The father, Akanbi, said he was called that his first child was ill on Saturday, adding that he was shocked to learn of his death the following day.
He said, “I was called on Saturday around 11am by his friend, Gabriel, that he was ill and had been rushed to a hospital.
“A doctor at the hospital asked that I send N7,500 for blood and urine tests, which I did.
“After I sent the money, I was being briefed by his friend of the treatment until that evening when he stopped picking my calls.”
He said the family pastor in Ogbomosho broke the news of the death to him on Sunday.
He said he was surprised when he was told that his son died from kidney failure, adding that since his birth, he had never fallen ill.
Akanbi said the NYSC Coordinator, Abia State, Mrs. Francesca Ifon, later called to offer condolences on the death.
