Dr Ogum Obeten, the consultant, is said to have slumped and died on Thursday, August 28, 2014, while jogging at 8 Miles on the outskirts of Calabar. One friend of Obeten who spoke with said he was “still at a loss over the death of Ogum, especially after we hung out the previous day”. Another friend revealed that “when he slumped while jogging, someone who recognised him called his house and people rallied around and took him to UCTH but I think it was already late when he got to the hospital and whatever effort thereafter was an exercise in futility”.

Reacting to the sad news, a junior colleague in UCTH described the late Obeten as a “senior colleague with a listening ear. Always ready to put in a good word for his colleagues and carries out his work with gusto”. Obeten who hails from Ekori, Yakurr LGA, is married with four kids.
