In attendance, were members of the UHAS community, as well as relatives and friends of the 41 years old lecturer, most of whom, are yet to come to terms with his sudden demise.
One of his close allies narrated that, “Winfred, is an extrovert, who is very cordial with everyone. There was no day that you’ll see him moody; so I’m very shock to hear such a tragedy could befall him.”
