SOSPOLY Sets Up Committee To Investigate Student’s Death. Information reaching us has it that the management of the Polytechnic, Sokoto has set up a 12-man committee to investigate the death of a student of the institution, who allegedly died as a result of the poor conditions of the polytechnic’s clinic.
It was reported that a student, Muyideen Salawu died of an alleged water-borne disease, which led to a widespread protest by students.
The protesting students complained about inadequate water and power supply which they said compounded their condition on the campus and contributed to Salawu’s death.
Setting up the committee, the Rector of the Polytechnic, Prof Aminu Ibrahim, gave them one week to submit its report and said those found wanting would be sanctioned.
However, Ibrahim debunked claims that the National Diploma (ND) 1 student died of acute malaria, saying that the institution’s clinic works.
He further rejected allegations water scarcity, saying that the school has solar-powered boreholes and those powered by generators.
