Usman Abubakar Rimi, a final year Medicine and Surgery Student at Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto (UDUS), who started selling food following the eight months ASUU strike, has died.
Rimi died after a protracted illness.
After being fed up with the strike embarked upon by ASUU in early February this year, the student opened a food store in Sokoto to keep himself busy while the strike lingers.
WikkiTimes learned that Rimi died a few days after ASUU temporarily suspended the strike.
Umar Idris, a close friend of the deceased confirmed his death to reporters, adding that Mr Rimi has been buried according to Islamic rites.
