life too short

LAUTECH student slums and dies after playing football match

A 400L student of Chemical Engineering, department of Ladoke Akintola, University of Technology LAUTECH Ogbomosho, Fatai Kolawole, slumped while playing a novelty match organized by his Department earlier this week. According to some of his colleagues, Fatai, who was still gasping for air, was quickly rushed to School Health Center where he later died.

One of his colleagues explains…
“They gave him breathing tube and tried to cajole us when they knew there was no oxygen in the cylinder. It was when they knew things were getting out of hand that they told us to rush him to Bowen Hospital Ogbomosho, few miles away from the Campus. A nurse was instructed to follow us anyway…we requested for the Health center Ambulance but we were told the driver was sent to buy food, so we hustled our way by hiring a car that conveyed us. On our way, we were stopped by the SARS (Special anti-robbery Squad) we tendered our urgency and they helped us clear the way to Bowen Hospital, when we got there he was rushed inside the emergency ward with news only reaching us outside that the Doctor has certified him dead.
We got back to Health center to report situation of things, when we met the Doctor-in- charge (named withheld) who said fatai was dead even before we brought him from the field. That was a big lie, i was the one who carried him in my arms inside the health center and i am very sure he was still gasping for air,fighting for his dear life”.
