NAN reports that Echetama, until his death, was a senior lecturer at the Department of Business Education.

The development has made students stay away from lectures over an emerging rumour that lecturer died of COVID-19.

Some students were seen evacuating the school hostels, while others fled the school premises for the fear of contracting coronavirus.

Some of the students speaking to NAN said they stayed away from lecture halls when the rumour emerged that the lecturer died of COVID-19 complication.

A final year student of the institution, Mr. Frederick Anyawu, said the development has forced lecturers to suspend lectures.

He said students decided to keep away from the college until the issue is sorted out. Dailypost
