A young and promising Nigerian teenager, Mubarak Razak, 16, has died after a brief illness leaving his family members in pain. Coming after successes in his UTME exams and Post-UTME screening to study Medicine and Surgery in University of Ilorin, he has lost his life.
StellaDimokokorkus shared the sad news sent by a family friend: ”The person in subject was a close relation of mine, his name was Mubarak Razak by name and 16 years. He applied for Medicine and Surgery at University of Ilorin after being denied admission last year when he applied for Anatomy scoring 206 in UTME, immediately after graduating in a private secondary school in Ilorin, Kwara state.
He then struggled to have a better UTME score this year and passed POST-JAMB excellently scoring 72% when he suddenly died after a brief illness last week Saturday night. He was survived by 3 siblings, his father, a civil servant(Mr Razak Owolabi) and Mother,a government school teacher (Mrs Aminat Razak). I just taught I should share this story because to me he left an indelible mark in this world, he was a nice, quiet boy and so young. And I believe that it’s not how far you go in life but how well.
The first picture is during his school graduation”.
