Daily Trust - - CAMPUS ROUNDUP - From Muhammed Sani

The Depart­ment of Bio­med­i­cal Tech­nol­ogy, Federal Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (FUT) Ow­erri, cap­i­tal of Imo State, has lost a se­nior lec­turer, Dr. Sikiru Lam­ina, whose death has shocked both stu­dents.

The de­ceased was var­i­ously de­scribed as a kind, friendly, ded­i­cated and re­source­ful teacher tipped to be­come the next head of his depart­ment.

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of

lec­tur­ers and Bio­med­i­cal Tech­nol­ogy Stu­dents (NABTES) com­ment­ing on his death, said: “With sad­ness in our hearts, we an­nounce the death of our fa­ther, brother, friend, staff ad­vi­sor, lec­turer, Dr Sikiru Lam­ina. He was a man that ev­ery stu­dent loved, ev­ery staff loved. We pray to God to grants him eter­nal rest.”

Mus­lim stu­dents, speak­ing through their union, also said they have lost a men­tor and a source of in­spi­ra­tion to many.

They prayed for Al­lah to for­give his short­com­ings and grant him Jan­natul Fir­daus.

Sim­i­larly, Lam­ina’s death was de­scribed by all those who knew him in the school as a great loss, not only to his depart­ment, but the univer­sity as a whole.
