The circumstances surrounding her untimely demise remain shrouded in mystery, as the cause of her death is yet to be ascertained.

A Grim Déjà Vu

Adaeze’s tragic passing comes as a painful reminder of the recent, harrowing incident that shook UNIPORT.

The Dean of Student Affairs at UNIPORT, Chima Wokocha, has confirmed the heart-wrenching discovery of Adaeze’s lifeless body. He revealed that concerned neighbors brought her remains to the Chief Lulu-Brigss Health Centre within the university. It is important to note that Adaeze did not pass away in the university hostel but in her off-campus residence in Aluu.

The police have also been involved in the investigation, alongside the university management. The parents of the late Adaeze have been notified of this tragic incident. While the circumstances surrounding her death are still uncertain, the discovery of a bottle containing a mysterious substance near her side suggests a possible link to her passing.
