A Corps Member Dies After Suffering From Aplastic Anaemia

A corps member, Obafemi Oluwatimilehin Paul who was serving in Kebbi state lost his life after suffering from aplastic anaemia. Obafemi was a graduate of Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA). May his soul rest in peace, amen.

He was posted to Kebbi state for his NYSC where he got sick and was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia, which is the deficiency of all types of blood cell caused by failure of bone marrow development. He was then redeployed to Oyo state and was admitted to University college hospital, Ibadan until his death.

Mourning his death, one of his friends, Nathaniel Obafemi wrote;
Brother, my heart bleeds for my fallen brother Obafemi Oluwatimilehin Paul I have failed you. I should have stopped serving my Father land and just concentrate on taking care of you.

NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS failed you and I also failed you. I was busy going for DG’S cup for the National Youth Cultural and Sports Festival making Kebbi state proud and leaving you to suffer!


You told me how much you were suffering and I couldn’t help you. Please, forgive me.
1. I regret serving my Father land
2. I regret us going to Kebbi state to serve. I chatted with the Director General of NYSC “KAZAURE”
I told him how much you were suffering, instead of him putting a call through to the State coordinator Oyo state, all he said was “meet Oyo state cord”..

    I pray this country grows. Am yet to serve and am sure the FG has allocated sum amount to improve various camp facilities. Currently all camps are deteriorated. I plead with the government to look into these.
