500-level FUTA student SLUMPS and DIES



Students from the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) on Friday, protested over the sudden death of a 500-level student of the institution, Akeredolu Ayomide, who slumped and died on Thursday evening.

The students who blocked the ever-busy Akure/Ilesha road for several hours while the travers were stranded on the road following the gridlock on the axis of the road.

All entreaties by some management of the institution to the protesting students fell on deaf ears, alleging that the Institution’s medical center lacked basic amenities, resulting in the death of Ayomide.

One of the students, who spoke with journalists alleged that the deceased slumped in his hostel and was subsequently rushed to the University Health but said due to lack of basic amenities, the student lost his life at the university clinic.

He said; “We rushed him to the health center around 8:30 pm, when we got there, there was power outage, and throughout the oxygen set up, CPR and injections they gave him, the light wasn’t restored, we had to use our flashlights, this is hard to believe that there’s no backup power supply in the clinic.

“Also, the health center refused to attend to another student, a former FUTASU Vice President who was in a critical condition and needed emergency attention because she was not with her identification card, while the Health Center Director said students should do their worst when accosted.

“The students are expressing their displeasure with a peaceful demonstration and calls on the government to come to their aid as there has been series of similar incidents in the past and demonstrations ended with unfulfilled promises”.
