There have however been different reactions as regards the true cause of the death of the student. Majority of students of the university have claimed that negligence on the part of the university hospital led to the death of the student.

A student who pleaded anonymity said the boy was taken to the university health centre and later to the university teaching hospital where he was refused treatment because he had no ID card with him.

He said ” When Biodun was injured, we called the Police but they didn’t show up, eventually he was taken to the health centre where they later transferred him to the university teaching hospital. There, we heard he was denied treatment because he could not produce his ID card. Imagine that, he was bleeding so bad but he wasn’t treated”.
