Easter: Seminarian Dies While Acting Jesus Drama In Imo State

Tragedy struck at Claratian University of Nigeria Nekede in Owerri, Imo State when a seminarian, Suel Ambrose, slumped and died while acting in a drama to portray how Jesus was crucified on Good Friday.

Infoexpert24 reports that the incident caused panic and pandemonium among the seminarians and passersby as efforts to revive him failed.

Some students interviewed on Saturday morning said the deceased, a native of Benue State, was dramatizing the character of the biblical Peter during the activities marking the crucifixion of Jesus Christ when the ugly incident happened.

One of the students, Mavis said the 25- year- old first-year student of Philosophy died on the spot.

The student said: “He was playing the role of the biblical Peter in the dream to demonstrate how Peter cut the ear of one of the Roman soldiers who came to arrest Christ and Jesus fixed the ear and as the drama was going on he slumped and died.

“So the young man fell on the floor and started bleeding. We took him to our school hospital and the doctors did their best to revive him but he was not responding.

“We took him to the Federal Medical Centre in Owerri and that was where he was certified dead.

“The drama was in commemoration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in respect to the Easter celebration. He was born in 1997. He is a year one student and had the dream of becoming a priest in the Catholic church.”

At the time of filing this report, the school premises was quiet as everyone was in a mourning mood.

The priest in charge of Students Affairs in the university, Fr Chukwuemeka Iheme told newsmen that the institution would brief the public after the “authority gives permission to do so.”
