The Deputy Chancellor (DVC) of Benue State University (BSU), Professor Godwin Achinge, has been declared dead.
He was pronounced dead on Sunday in the state of Jos Plateau. Less than 24 hours later, Governor Samuel Ortom announced him as one of those who tested positive for COVID-19.
Achinge was also Vice Chairman of the Benue State Emergency Committee for COVID 19.
The governor announced during a press conference on Saturday that his wife Eunice Ortom and Achinge were some of the new cases of coronavirus infections in the state.
It has been reported that he died in Jos, where he was admitted to treatment.
However, news of the death of the Vice Vice Chancellor (DVC Admin) of Benue State University (BSU) arrived in Benue on Sunday, July 5, 2020.
At the time of the press conference, there was no confirmation that the deceased DVC had died as a result of COVID 19.
The news of his death stunned many, particularly the COVID 19 committee and the Benue State University community.
Some people who wrote condolences on his Facebook page described him as a perfect gentleman who was easygoing.
Others said he was heavily involved in the fight against the spread of COVID 19 in Benue.
There was no official statement from Benue State University or the COVID 19 committee chaired by Deputy Governor Benson Abounu. However, it was found that they were consulting with the family and the university.
Several reactions followed the announcement of his death, as many people said they would miss a doctor who treated the patient for free.
The late professor Achinge was an advisor who offered free medical treatment to patients in his counseling clinic on the popular Katsina Ala Street in the high-ranking area of Makurdi, the capital of the state of Benue.
