The Students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, UNIZIK, Awka, yesterday, took to the streets to protest the death of their colleague, a final year student of Microbiology, Francis Mmadubuobi who died at the school’s clinic moments after he slumped watching a Basketball game.
There has been speculations that Francis, who was about to write his final paper died due to the nonchalance and incompetence of the workers at the schools medical center. Reports from various sources reveal that there was no doctor at the clinic as at the time the late student was rushed to the centre.
