Final year student dies while playing football in Akure

There was pandemonium at the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA, on Saturday after a 500 level Applied Geophysics student, Tunji Agboola, slumped and died while playing football at his off campus residence close to FUTA South gate.

He was rushed to the university’s health centre, but the centre was not open due to the ongoing strike by the Non-Academic Staff Union. He was later rushed to a private hospital in the area, but was not attended to due to the lack of oxygen. He was eventually taken to the State Specialist Hospital, Akure, where he was confirmed dead.
