He visualised his death as shocking, as he was not expecting that the cold hands of death will snatch him away at his prime".

Another student, David Aghe, 500l portrayed the hero as a "meticulous lecturer". "I have never felt so bad, the death of a lecturer who taught me the previous semester and supposedly marked my script is still a shock to me ", a 200l student said amidst tears.
