A 400 level law student of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), has lost his life after he was reportedly sent home to get a haircut and present his ID card before he could be allowed to sit for an exam in his faculty.
Ezeh Goodluck, also known as Kasa, arrived at his faculty to sit for the exam yesterday, 1st of April, 2019.
Reports had it that just before the exam, he updated his WhatsApp status. It was an optimistic post. Unfortunately, he wasn’t allowed into the exam hall.
He was ordered to go get a haircut because it was against the standard of the faculty. He was also requested to present his ID card before being allowed to take the exams.
While hurrying to get home so he could meet the aforementioned conditions, he mounted a bike but didn’t make it to his destination.
The tire of the bike blew and resulted in an abysmal accident. The bike man died instantly while Goodluck was alive but unconscious. He was rushed to the Chukwuemka Odumegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital.
As reported to LIB by a source, the staff of the hospital gave him drip and all but reportedly abandoned him for hours. The source also claimed that at about 6 pm, a doctor told his friends of the unconscious student that their hospital lacks the facilities needed to guarantee his survival and he needed to be referred to a hospital in Nnewi. He was carried into the ambulance but gave up the ghost before he could get to the hospital in Nnewi.
Another source who talked to LIB claimed the Dean of the Law Faculty later called the student’s mother to console her but he wasn’t diplomatic about it. He allegedly told the mother that her son should have boarded the school’s shuttle bus but decided to mount a bike which led to his death.
The grievous mother, angered by her son’s illogical death, questioned why her son needed an ID card to be allowed into the examination hall when he has been a student of the university for 4 years and should be easily recognised by his colleagues and lecturers.
