Phd Student Crushed To Death By Truck After He Was Forced At Gun Point By Bandit

Dr. Joseph Imoter Ukpanya was crushed to death
by a truck along the Makurdi-Lafia road last
weekend.
According to reports, late Ukpanya, who was
pursuing his PhD in History and War studies at
the Nigerian Defence Academy, was on his way
home from Jos, Plateau state, when he ran into a
gang of armed robbers.
The robbers forced him at gunpoint to lay face
down on the road as a barricade for vehicles.
However, an oncoming speeding truck refused to
stop and ran over him. He wrote his last Exam on
July 16th, 2019.
Ukpanya was laid to rest on Thursday, August 8,
in Gwer West local government area of Benue
State after a wakekeep at his family compound,
Adikpo Street, Ankpa Ward, Makurdi.
See tributes by friend and family below:
"Very very shocked when i received the
news of untimely and brutal death of this
extremely Youngman. I met Joseph Imoter
when I was posted to Kaduna by my
organisation. A very organised, cerebral and
focused family man. He was pursuing his
PhD in History and War studies at the
Nigerian Defence Academy before he was
crushed by a truck when he was forced at
gun point by bandits on Makurdi-Lafiya
road to remain on the road as a speeding
truck approached. He could not buy his
freedom. May God console his young wife
and little children. Rest in peace,boki. Kai.
This is very painful."
"RIP Senior, Dr. Joseph Imoter. Those
robbers will die a horrible death, Amen. You
were forced to lie on the road as a
barricade for vehicles by robbers (Lafia-
Makurdi) and you were crushed. Hhhhhhhh
my God."
"While at Benue State University, Joseph
Imoter Ukpanya, James Terngu Jillah,
Martins Mver Hanmaikyur and I, Tobias
Utsaha formed a great bond; we had great
dreams. Together we worked very hard to
attain greatness. Joseph Ukpanya was
called Maradona, due to his ability to seek
quick solutions to series of issues
confronting us. In terms of intellectual
capacity, Maradona had an edge over us, as
his abilities to address academic issues in
history were miles ahead of us. Maradona
nevermind getting himself into trouble just
for the sake of saving his friends. Maradona
sacrificed his happiness for others to be at
peace. He really endured a lot for the sake
of many. When he decided to get married in
2013, he made me his Best man. He was
always fond of introducing me to a lot of
persons, not just as his friend, but also as
his Best man. He once said to me " Dada,
you are a part of me that can never be
forgotten." I will tell you one thing about
Maradona, Maradona was a damn good
man. His death has created a vacuum in
the lives of many, that can never be filled.
Forever in my heart. Adieu Maradona. May
the Almighty God bless your soul. Amen."
