A 400 Level Civil Engineering student of Cross River University of Technology, identified as Joseph Agbor has today been knocked down to death.
Joseph, 21 years old, is popularly known as JB Neil (boykul). Born on September 11th, 1997 got admitted into the department of Civil Engineering in CRUTECH in 2015.
He was allegedly knocked down by 200 level throttle happy students who took an unidentified car for a joy ride apparently lacking the expertise in driving. The incident took place within the hours of 12.00 – 1.00pm midday, 12th March, 2019 around the faculty of Engineering.
Joseph was initially rushed to the school’s medical center. When there was little or nothing that could be done for him, he had to be taken to a hospital. He gave up on the way.
The CrutechNews team have at the time of writing this report not been able to gather information about the identity of the perpetrators of this hideous crime.
What happened to Joseph could have happened to any one of us. He didn’t deserve what he got, none of us do. Be careful when you walk in school, watch the road. Don’t always expect the driver to notice you on the road all the time, No. When you see a vehicle approaching, please keep your distance, cross over to the other side of the gutter if necessary.
We send our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
