Singing Out – Francis, a final student of the Department of Microbiology, Nnamdi Azikiwe University Unizik, died yesterday, after slumping during a basketball competition.
The deceased, who was meant to write his last paper today, signed out last week. He was rushed to the school’s clinic but there was no doctor on ground or oxygen to help stabilize him.
He was later rushed to another hospital, where he was confirmed dead on arrival. Two years ago, Ugo, from the same Department, also died because of the careless of the doctors and lack of equipment at the institution’s clinic.
Making the report on Facebook, the UNIZIK SUG PRO, Churchill Chiagozie wrote;
