Final Year Student dies While Playing Football


A final year student of Computer Science at the Benson Idahosa University, Benin, Edo State, Bruno Chigozie Ezeonye, has died while playing ball.

According to report in general circulation, Bruno was on the school’s legacy campus’ football pitch when his end came.

He was said to have slumped while playing ball, with the rescue operation his slumping prompted on the side of his colleagues in vain.

The deceased’s fellow-students did not take the circumstances leading to his passing away in their stride, they thought the school blameable, particularly the clinic where late Bruno was rushed to, with report that the lack of petrol in the school’s ambulance stood in the way of moving him to a better medical facility, Faith Mediplex Hospital.

On Tuesday some students let out their anger vandalising the school clinic and its security post before peace was restored.
