A seminarian, Suel Ambrose, reportedly slumped and died while acting in a drama on campus at Claretian University of Nigeria, Nekede, in Owerri, Imo State.
It was gathered that the deceased who hailed from Benue State was dramatising the role of the biblical Peter in the Passion of Christ when the incident occurred on Friday.
A source explained to newsmen saying, “he was playing the role of the biblical Peter in the dream and that process when Peter cut the ear of one of the soldiers and Jesus fixed the ear and ask Peter to let them do their wish. You know how passionate the play is.
“So when the soldiers chase the disciples to drive them away from Jesus, the young man fell on the floor and started bleeding. We took him to our school hospital and the doctors did their best but he was not responding to treatment. We took him to the Federal Medical Center in Owerri where he was pronounced dead.”
The deceased who had the dream of becoming a Catholic priest was aged 25 and was a year one student.
