Staff and students of newly established University of Africa (UAT), Toru-Orua, in Bayelsa State, are still in shock after a Professor in the institution, Prince Efere, was allegedly found dead in his office with his head resting on his table.
Colleagues of the deceased went to his office to check up on him when he did not show up for a meeting, only to find him dead, reports The Nation.
The late professor’s friends were said to have confirmed his death, saying that he was found resting his head on his office table.
Efere was appointed Acting Rector of Bayelsa State Institute of Tourism Catering and Hotel Management by the former state governor, Seriake Dickson, following the formal passage and signing into law of the bill establishing the school in 2013.
In 2017, Efere, who held two doctorate degrees in Health Services Management and Education from two Central American Universities, was made Dean, School of Foundation Studies at UAT.
