More than 200 students slumped due to exhaustion at UNIZIK

Over 200 students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), Awka, Anambra State, slumped while writing the post-UTME examination on Monday.

However, nobody died.

Some students, who spoke with anambrariansnews yesterday, said the school authorities did not make proper arrangements for the examination.

One of them said: “The examination was not organised; computers were not enough and we were there from 8am till 9pm.

“Honestly, more than 200 students slumped due to exhaustion and the lecturers did not care, as they were busy pushing us from one place to another.

“Some who came from distant places without relations in Anambra slept in the open and the fear is that no one knows if any of the slumped students died,” she said.

But the Director of Information and Public Relations, Emmanuel Ojukwu debunked the allegations.
He said only three students slumped and they were resuscitated at the school’s clinic.

Ojukwu said one of the victims was asthmatic and didn’t come with her medication. The second victim was in an accident earlier while the third was hungry.

He added that the school had 500 computers, while the examinations ended by 5pm.

“What we did was to allow those already screened to finish their exams while the others were told to come back on Friday.

“On Monday, we had 11,000 students; 8,200 wrote the exam and others will write theirs later.

“The place was organised and the school is equal to the task,” Ojukwu said.
