The student reportedly slumped while playing football on the school field on Tuesday, May 23, and was rushed to the school clinic.

Reports say that the final-year student who was rushed to the school clinic was unattended to for several hours due to the unavailability of equipment.

Some colleagues reportedly tried to rush their friend to the hospital but the school ambulance did not have fuel, hence the student gave up the ghost due to the delay.

Following his death, students at the school staged a protest and reportedly vandalized the school clinic and security post.
