According to reports, all efforts to reach the school's proprietor Chief A.B. Ekwere, were futile as he ignored his phone calls.

Some witnesses said Michael was not rushed to the hospital immediately, which may have caused his imminent death. Sources also revealed that the school lacked proper high jump facilities, as only a small mattress was placed on the ground for students to land on.

The Principal of the school, Mr Odo Cosmas Uchenna, said only the proprietor is allowed to speak on the matter, as it happens to be a sensitive one.

During a quick visit to the emergency ward of the Bwari General Hospital where Michael was taken to after his accident, an anonymous medical personnel said he had attended to the deceased when he was brought in at about 1pm that day, and that he was already unconscious and foaming at the mouth. He also said all efforts to revive him proved abortive as he died before anything could be done for him.

Michael's mother Mrs Ogbe, said she was not informed immediately her son's injury happened and that she had gotten to the hospital around 2:30pm, only to see that they had already gotten his corpse ready for the morgue.

She lamented that she had raised Michael alone as she had lost her husband several years back. She said:

We had to force him to go on Tuesday, Michael was a comput­er wiz-kid. He wanted to work as a computer security expert in government or a tele­communications company. I miss him so much, I can’t give birth again, I don’t even have a husband, I don’t know where to start from. Life has no meaning any­more; I worked so hard for Michael.

The school is so careless, they don’t take care of the students, I want justice done. I gave you a live child and you are giving me back a dead one. It wouldn’t have taken me 40 minutes to get to the school.
