    It is alleged that this is not the first time the Jaja Hospital is rejecting a student brought there for medical attention.

    The students are calling on the school’s management to improve on the welfare of students especially through the medical services.

    As at the time of this report, four police vans were stationed in front of the school but it did not stop the students from their protest.

    Reacting to the protest, the UI Registrar, Mr. Olujimi Olukoya, said the rampaging students outside the school gate were not from UI.

    He claimed that the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Isaac Adewole, had addressed the authentic students inside the school on the matter.

    RIP to the dead…
