In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through Benson Idahosa University and the wider community, a final-year student tragically lost his life due to alleged negligence. The incident sparked a school protest and demands for justice that have since gone viral.
According to eyewitnesses, the incident occurred at the Benson Idahosa University medical centre when the student, Bruno Chigozie, was rushed there after slumping during a football match.
However, instead of receiving immediate and proper medical attention, it is alleged that he was left unattended for a significant period while desperate onlookers pleaded for help. In a desperate effort to save his life, friends and good samaritans reportedly tried taking him to the nearest hospital to be treated, but the school’s ambulance allegedly had no fuel. Once they had fuel, the security of the school would not let them go until they had made a formal exit request.
Chigozie, the only son of his parents and only 21 years old, gave up the ghost.
As the news circulated on social media, it garnered widespread outrage and protest from the students. Many criticised the alleged negligence displayed by the medical centre staff and called for a thorough investigation into the incident. The hashtag #JusticeForBruno began trending on various social media platforms, with users demanding accountability and justice for the deceased student.
The tragic death of the final-year student serves as a stark reminder of the importance of prompt and efficient medical care. The incident has sparked conversations on the need for improved healthcare facilities and protocols in educational institutions, urging authorities to ensure the safety and well-being of students. The outcome of the investigation will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for both the university and the medical community as a whole.
