The deceased classmate, Rex Nwome, said Favour had been failing the particular course repeatedly.

Nwoke added that Dr Enyi did vow never to allow Favour to graduate from the department.

“You could imagine where she later passed all the courses except that lecturer’s that, she had to pay another extra year tuition fee to rewrite.
