Academic and social activities were paralysed at the Ogun State Institute of Technology (OGITECH), Igbesa on Tuesday, November 3, as students shut down the institition’s gates to protest against the death of a student who was allegedly rejected by the school clinic after a motorcycle accident.
According to an eyewitness, Malik was rushed to the school clinic but was rejected. The students then requested for an ambulance to take him to a hospital in the community but were told there was no fuel in the vehicle.
“Immediately after he got hit by a bike man, he was rushed to the clinic opposite the school, where he was rejected. They requested for the institute’s ambulance to rush the victim to the hospital but unfortunately it was said that the ambulance is short of fuel.” a witness said.
The protesting students also sent away the Dean of Students Affairs and rebuffed attempt by the Special Assistant to Governor Dapo Abiodun on Students Affairs, Hon Adeyemi Azeez to pacify them. They insisted the student won’t have died if the clinic was properly equipped.
