The students, dressed in black attires, began the procession outside the school gate and walked slowly round the polytechnic with candlelights while some displayed placards with various inscriptions which read; “R.I.P comrades” , “Akwa Poly will miss you comrade Victor and Miracle”, “R.I.P Akwa Poly Warriors” among others.
The SUG President, Emmanuel Udonnkwo, while addressing the gathering called for sober reflection by all and prayed for God’s intervention against death in the institution.
He said, “Today calls for sober reflection by all of us students and staff of this institution and we pray for God’s intervention to avert further death in our school.”

Speaking during the visit, the Rector expressed grief over the death of the deceased saying he was a “great asset” to the polytechnic. He condoled with the family and prayed to God to grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
