The Renaissance University, Ugbawka, Enugu State, has announced the death of a 400-level student in the Department of History, Obinna Anorue who complained of fever and headache at the varsity clinic on Tuesday, November 3.
The varsity Registrar, Adedeji Adebayo, mourning his death, said, “He was transported to the clinic of our nearby affiliate institution, Mea Mater Elizabeth High School, where he was examined by the doctor and medications administered to stabilise him. He said he was okay, ate his dinner and was taken back to the university.
“Two days later (5th November), he came back to the clinic complaining of the same fever and headache, and on examination had tender epigastrium (upper part of the abdomen). He was also found not to be compliant with his medications. He was encouraged to adhere to his medications with antacids added.
“The next day when he was said to still be febrile and not adhering to the drug regimen, the doctor referred him to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, despite his insistence that he was doing good.
“But while on transit, he was reportedly diverted to the 82 Division Military Hospital. He subsequently reportedly passed on in a private hospital in the early hours of yesterday,” the statement added.
Adebayo, who rendered his condolences to the deceased’s family, friends and students, said the university was pained by the death.
