Undergraduate, who died at school’s facility, buried amid controversy
Students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka on Tuesday came out in their numbers to pay their last respect to late Francis Chinedu Mmadubuobi who until his death was a 400l student of Microbiology at the uni.
The funeral took place in the deceased’s father residence at Abacha in Idemili North Local government of Anambra state.
It is recalled that Francis died at the University’s medical centre as a result of alleged poor medical efforts by the medical officers.
After the death of Francis, the Vice Chancellor, Joseph Ahaneku, instituted a four-man investigation panel to unravel the true position and circumstance of his death.
The panel which was given two weeks to give a report on the death has not given any report for about two months.
All efforts to get the school authority to account for the death of Francis proved abortive. The school authority seems to have forgotten the panel and their report.
Speaking at the funeral, the parish priest of St Michael Catholic Church Abacha, Jude Udeanyi, enjoined Christian Faithful to have a good relationship with God while they are on earth. He noted that an undetermined life is not worth living.
He advised the congregation to pray for the souls of the departed especially that of Francis.
