There was commotion at the Federal university of technology, Minna, Niger state after some students of the institution reportedly set ablaze the clinic on Bossom campus.
The students were said to have gone berserk after a 300l Chemistry Option student, Yeye, died due to lack of the health centre. Yeye was said to have collapsed on field during training, around 5:08pm, and was rushed to the school clinic for treatment, but the members of staff at the clinic refused to do anything on him until his school ID card be provided.
According to Nigeria Politics Online, Yeye died after long moments of deliberation and not receiving medical attention. The students were pissed off as they accused the doctor of not giving him first aid.
A student source who also confirmed the story said the victim was part of the football for school team.
“After he played the friendly match… The school coach was about to start the discussion with them before he went down. They rushed him to school clinic… On getting there doctor confirmed he has peg out. They rushed him to the general hospital maybe he can be alive because the students there said he was sweating,” he added
It was learnt that the aggrieved students square up and burnt down the clinic and the school bakery before the fire service could arrive. They were said to have branched the school hostels, vandalizing hostels, glass windows, dining hall, photocopy stand, micro-finance bank and cars.
Soldiers have however been deployed to the school to restore peace but the school management is yet to make any official statement about the incident as at the time of filing this report.
