My electrocuted daughter made excellent grades in WASSCE —Father

DEBORAH Faleke, who was electrocuted by a fallen high-tension at Fagbenro Street, Alakuko, on May 21, had two distinctions and six credits in the just released West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results.

Pastor Ademola Faleke, father of the deceased, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday that Deborah performed excellently well and her result was one of the best in her school.

NAN reported that tragedy struck on Fagbenro Street, after a high-tension wire fell on the 14-year-old Deborah and was immediately electrocuted.

“The late Deborah had two distinctions and six credits out of the nine subjects she sat for in the 2016 May/June examination.

“She had C6 in Economics, B3 in Geography, C5 in Civil Education and C4 in English Language. She also had C4 in Mathematics, B3 in Chemistry, E8 in Biology, C6 in Physics and F9 in Marketing,” he said.

The pastor, moved to tears while reeling out the result to NAN, said Deborah had desired to study Biochemistry in one of the privately-owned universities in Ogun, before her untimely death.

I had promised to finance her education to her desired level then, Faleke said.

“Now that she was no more, the result had become a wasted effort and her hopes of studying the course of her choice dashed,” he said.

NAN had previously reported that Deborah had gone to stay with her cousin, barely two weeks after she had finished writing her WASSCE examination when the unfortunate incident that led to her untimely death happened.

The high-tension which belonged to Ikeja Electric (IE) fell on Deborah immediately electricity supply was restored to the area around 10.00 a.m. that fateful day.
