My friend dies of Cardiac arrest




A 200 level student in the Medicine and Surgery department suffered a cardiac arrest yesterday (19th of March). His name is Gogo-Job Ene. May his soul rest in perfect peace!

Gogo is my friend and colleague. He was the first person I met in UNIPORT during my faculty clearance in 2018. Let me just recount how I experienced the entire event.

On the 19th of March we were supposed to have CHEM260 practical in the chemistry laboratory. Gogo is my group member and we copied the last practical together. On this faithful day, I arrived for the practical which was just about to start. I signed my named on the attendance list only to notice that Gogo was absent. I signed attendance for Gogo anticipating his arrival but he never showed up.

Story has it that Gogo was too weak to climb the stairs and come to the laboratory. So he called one of his close friends and the course representative of Medicine and Surgery. These two alongside the course representative of Pharmacy rushed Gogo to the health centre. He slumped in their care before anything could be done. In the taxi his eyeballs began to enter into his head and his tongue began to protrude. The staff at the health centre declared him dead.

On my way to the hostel a colleague approached me insisting I should follow her to the Lulu-Briggs Health Centre because Gogo had been rushed there. How shocked I was to here this! The last I heard from Gogo was a call in which he said he was close to the laboratory. What must have happened to him?

Reaching the Lulu-Briggs Health Centre I saw some female colleagues crying with red eyes. I immediately approached my male friend and he announced the death of Gogo-Job Ene to me. How hurtful! This was someone that viewed my Facebook story a few days ago. How could he have gone so soon?

Death!



Death is a noble act in the affairs of men.

Here and there we hear screams from the chambers of death. Why are we prompted to cry when people die? The closer the deceased is to us the more tears will flow from our eyes. Is this the right approach to such an act?

Let us not forget that birth and death are the most important events in this earth life. We rejoice when a new born child comes to join our families but we writhe in anguish when a life is taken away. Is it not appointed to man once to die? From our early moments of consciousness we await the day of our deaths but when the day actually comes to fulfillment we feel deep sorrow. Do you not want to die one day? The earlier we embrace death and its blessings the better our lives will be and the easier it will be to die.

How many instances have we had of death struggle –countless! People relive the process of dying multiple times as they struggle to leave the earth. Indeed they do not want to leave this world. Men have stacked up wealth and riches and made their lives so comfortable that they wish to live forever. Would you want to die if you had billions of dollars in your bank account?

Death brings us all to the same plane under God. Rich or poor, great and small, we all will die and our bodies will rot. This perception brings us to a realization in our daily lives that certain things are truly important and some other ones are like chaff in the wind. What will it profit a man if he has so much and his neighbour has so little?

Remember death is fast approaching. We will only fear it when we have done little for our fellow men. In the chamber of death, the deepest good deeds we have done will comfort us. They will be our companions through such dreaded hour converting such times to blissful dreams. Be guided fellow men!
