  2. Malaria , no this is not good at all. There should have been more care. God have mercy on the parents

  3. It’s a very big lose to the family of Daniel. I advice everyone check his/her health condition monthly so as to take medication if discovered ill to avoid untimely death. May his gentle soul rest in peace.

  5. I really hate to hear this such news about corpers, after struggling to get admission in school, passing school stress and activities then die during service, it’s really a heartbreak. In my opinion once you know your health status you can pick an exemption later. Life at hand is more important.

  7. This is a big loss. After all the struggle, now that your parents are supposed to enjoy their labor. What a loss to malaria? Please, let’s take caution and treat ourselves properly. If malaria can kill, then there is no illness that’s worth handling with levity. RIP DANIEL

  8. so sad. after all the years spent in school and the high hopes of his parents, all have been dashed in a matter of seconds. its quite painful that even with all the happenings in nysc camps, the governemnt still find it difficult to make a special provision for health in camps. the tiny clinics in camps cant carter for the health needs of corps members, and aslo lack of adequate drugs in the so called clinics is another problem that should be looked into.
