School Story:

Everyday in KC was eventful-for good or evil circumstances. In the early days of KC life, it was all misery...misery and misery. I felt caged in by the constant bullying, missing meals or being sent out for not doing your bathroom work, dormitory work, impositions and so on. However, as we became seniors the story started changing. We started becoming the object of suspicion of various nefarious activities at every point of our lives. I remember the famous story where Mr Chima came to Harman's house on inspection at night. He found some students smoking (The rumors were that it was Samson and others). However, the suspects managed to escape through the fire escape. Unfortunately one of them was rushing and could not wear his left shoe and therefore left it behind. Mr Chima had gotten his clue as to who the 'crime suspects' were. In the morning, he started calling all the seniors. And he would say, Ayagi...marsh ya leg against this shoe...and when it was Ali Baffa's turn, he looked at him and said, hmmm...Ali Baffa...E be like say na your papa way buy this shoe. We all laughed and got dealt with. These were the sort of things that we went through that made the life interesting and memorable.

What have you been up to since you graduated?

Since graduation from Kings' College, I had my first degree in Agricultural Engineering from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and an MS in Agricultural and Biological Engineering from Pennsylvania State University, State College. I came back to work in the family business. I have been managing the various segments of the agricultural enterprise of the business. At the same time, I do give lectures to students in the State University in Kano on Agricultural Engineering. For some mysterious reasons which I have not completely figured out yet, I decided to embark on a degree in Medicine at Bayero University, Kano. I have graduated from that program and am doing some volunteer work at the major state hospital here in Kano while also continuing my work in the agricultural arena.

Course of Study at University/College:

Agricultural and Biological Engineering/MBBS

Favorite Teacher at Kings College? Why?

Mr. Chima. I simply remember that the man was a contradiction of sorts. On one side, he was an exceptionally wonderful mathematics teacher. No matter how dull you were, he was sure to make me understand the subject matter. At the same time, he was the Harman's housemaster at a certain time-Indeed a very very suspicious person when it comes to catching "criminals"

Which House were you in?

Harman's House

Class Arm:


What was your intended profession at the time of graduation from King's College? Did that change? If so, why?

Agricultural Engineering

What did attending King's College teach you about yourself and life in general?

It taught me that I can be whatever I aspire to be by the grace of God. It also taught me that wherever you come from, you can get quality education to be at par with anybody on the planet

Ojonah, long time. How are you? It seems only yesterday when we were all kids in KC. Now, I am sure time has passed. I remember you as a very good friend then. I hope when I meet you, by God's grace, you will still be the same simple person and I hope it will be as if we just parted yesterday. Take care

Kai dan duniya, where are you? and how is life. I hope you remember we still have issues that we have not sorted out when you vanished from KC many decades ago without notice. And hoping you are making the best of life. Cheers

From Muhammad Hadi Ayagi,

It is with a deep sense of loss that I received the news of Echeruo's death. I have not been in contact with him for all these times since the KC days. However, I vividly remember him as the famous dozer and the person who first introduced me to BASIC computer programming. Computer programming has helped me in many professional endeavours that I have been involved in. I surely believe that for a lifetime, a teacher always deserves a great thank you and a special place in a student's heart. Echeruo, my computer teacher, thank you. May your soul rest in peace and may God give the give your parents and family the fortitude to bear the loss. Amen
