He was reportedly rushed to the school medical centre at about 3:40pm but the staff on duty allegedly told those who brought him to the clinic that the clinic had closed for the day.

Before they could locate a nearest hospital, the student died. The death of the student brought out the students on Saturday morning to protest the manner at which the school’s clinic handled the matter.
