Death of SS3 student, Edima Ini Umoh, in Akwa Ibom school sparks controversy
The mysterious death of a Senior Secondary School 3 student in Akwa Ibom State has become an object of controversy.
The deceased, Edima Ini Umoh, DAILY POST reports, was until her death a student of Full Life Academy, Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
It began as a minor complaint for headache but within the next few hours, Edima was no more.
Her death has now sparked allegations against the school authority.
But the school management on its part believes the mother of the deceased has a lot of questions to answer.
According to the Principal, Full Life Academy, Pastor Aniefonteabasi Victor- Williams, everything happened in a flash as no one had the premonition of her death.
She said the deceased student complained of having a headache in the morning of that fateful day and the nurse gave her paracetamol, adding that she felt better and joined her mates for lunch at about 2:30 pm, during which she even demanded for extra food.
The Principal told DAILY POST that, “at about 4:00 pm of same day,, Edima complained of headache again, at that point the school nurse wanted to commence a malaria treatment so that the headache would not result to full blown fever; she brought out a Coartem- an antimalarial drug to administer to her but the deceased refused to take it and said instead they should inform her mother to get Amathem for her.”
