The Alumni of the University of Jos, got the people of Bakana, Rivers State in tears as they left the comfort of their homes in Abuja to reunite and celebrate Valentine with their former classmate, Mr. Minabelem Hilary, who became mentally unstable on the eve of his Masters degree defence.
According to several reports, his friends traced him across the river to Bakana to spend some time with him, after which they took him to the Psychiatric Hospital in Rumuigbo, Port Harcourt, and paid for his treatment. They allegedly contributed the sum of N320,000 (three hundred and twenty thousand naira) for him to be admitted to a private ward.
The golden hearted alumni also bought new clothes for their former classmate. In a now trending video, these could be seen hugging and exchanging some old school jokes with him.
Reacting to the kind gesture, a doctor at the facility said Mr. Hillary had a good chance of complete recovery, especially if he took his drugs faithfully.
