There was a likelihood that the slain job-seeker may have been retained as a lecturer in the department of philosophy upon completion of her NYSC, an associate professor and acting head of the department, Idorenyin Esikot, told Premium Times.
The academic, who confirmed that the result was authentic, described Umoren as a focused, committed and hardworking lady.
Idorenyin, while ruing the loss - which according to him was personal - said the lady never failed a course and is a student she would encourage to join the teaching profession, were she to be alive.
"She was a very committed and focused student, very hard working. In fact, she was very versatile because apart from her academics, she was a footballer, playing for our female team.
“We have some of our colleagues, who are lecturers (today), who graduated with less GPA than her."
