Master’s degree student slumps, dies while jogging in Enugu



A Masters Degree student, Modestus Onah Ekene slumped and died at Okpara square Enugu while jogging alongside members of the Coal City Exercise club on November 9.


According to an eye witness, the deceased said to be in his late thirties and a Nigeria Red Cross Enugu member started panting but no one noticed that he was struggling as the group usually use “Ogene” and “Ichaka” to entertain themselves as they jog round the coal city.


He suddenly slumped and other members of the club who thought that he had a slip tried to help him up to his feet but to their surprise his body became lifeless. 



He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead by doctors.


Late Modestus hailed from Nsukka and a graduate of clinical psychology from Enugu state university of science and Technology and was until his death, a Master degree student at University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC).




A friend of the deceased took to Facebook to mourn his death. He wrote;
