Joseph Ada, a former housemate on the Big Brother Nigeria reality TV show, now known as BBNaija, has passed away.
Joseph, who participated in the first edition of the BBNaija show in 2006, reportedly died on Wednesday, May 24th, in Delare, US.
He was diagnosed with pancreatitis, which led to his untimely death.
Joseph, a former flight attendant with Virgin Atlantic, had relocated to the United States after the show.
He appeared on the reality show in 2006 with other housemates like popular media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Maureen Osuji, and Gideon Okeke, among others.
In other news, a final-year student of Benson Idahosa University (BIU), Bruno Chigozie Ezeonye, has passed away due to alleged negligence by the school authority.
The Computer Science student, said to be the only son of his parents, reportedly slumped while playing football on the school field on Tuesday May 23, and was rushed to the school clinic.
The deceased was reportedly left unattended for hours at the clinic, which is allegedly under-equipped.
His schoolmates reportedly tried taking him to the nearest hospital to be treated but were unable to do so because there was allegedly no fuel in the ambulance.
When they eventually got fuel, the school’s security refused to allow them leave the premises until they submitted an official exit request.
Due to the delay, Chigozie, who was only 21-years-old, gave up the ghost on Tuesday. His mother reportedly collapsed after receiving news of his death.
Following his death, students at the school staged a protest, and reportedly vandalized the school clinic and security post.
