Narrating the incident, Stanley Chukwunonso Fisher wrote on his Facebook page: “It was a scenario of sorrow and mourning when the news of the death of a 500 level student of the Benue State University (BSU) Makurdi, Victor-David Egbe was announced this morning.
“Apostle Victor was a medical student and also the pastor and founder of Campus Witness Church before his untimely death.
“One of his friends who shared the sad news on the social media said that the young pastor slumped at the Clinic while praying for a sick friend. He was reportedly rushed to the hospital but the young man gave up the ghost on the way.
“This is very touching and a sad news for the bereaved family …I wonder what would become their fate at the moment ? Oh! Death! Why your devoted servant?
“Rest In Peace victor, it’s so unfortunate brother, but Gods time is always the best for all mankind.”
One of his friends wrote: “EGBE VICTOR, you sent me a message yesterday and today I am told that you are sleeping. I can’t find DEATH in the content of this message. I posted a write-up yesterday on the common denominator of a man which is death; your name wasn’t envisioned. I have preached severally in your church and I never saw the end. Even now, I still refuse to write a farewell message for you.”
