Samson Abioye, the CEO and co-founder of fast-rising Nigerian tech startup with focus on education, Pass.Ng, has been reported dead.
The young man was said to have slumped and died on Friday, 28 July 2017. He was 25.
His death came as a rude shock as his platform has been attracting positive international reviews in recent times and was largely tipped to be the next big thing from Nigeria. Pass.Ng provides platform for students to practice questions on different exams – from WAEC to GCE to UME.
He studied Computer Engineering at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology where he graduated in 2014.
Also shocking is that no online media in Nigeria has reported the news of his demise since almost a week now. Given his status as one the finest tech personalities in Nigeria at the moment, one would expect the news of his demise to break the internet within hours.
