It was gathered that JIka died on Saturday, September 2, after allegedly being continuously starved and malnourished for over two weeks.

Jika, a student from Adamawa State enrolled in the Department of Computer Science, collapsed inside a restroom during the early hours of Saturday.

Speaking out of concern, an anonymous cadet revealed that the victim was urgently rushed to the academy’s clinic after his collapse. “He was left untreated because there were no drugs and no medical officer to attend to him in the unconducive environment before he gave up and died,” the source added.
