SO SO SAD! Best Student & Only Child Dies After High Jump During His School’s Inter-house Sports In Abuja

Michael Paul Ogbe, a 16-year-old SS3 student of ASACS International Staff College, Bwari, Abuja, has been reported dead, caused serious head injuries he sustained af­ter a high jump during the school’s inter-house sports on March 1, 2017.
.
His shocked mother, Marian Nnanna Ogbe, has called for a probe of the incident and justice over the untimely death of her only son, who lost his father when he was 4.
.
The late Michael was the best science stu­dent of the school.
.
Sources claimed that Michael would have survived if he was rushed immediately to the hospital for treatment.
.
Findings also revealed that the school lacked high jump facilities as it was a small mattress that was placed on the ground for the students to land on.
.
When Authorityngr newspaper called the proprie­tor, Chief A.B. Ekwere, who also owns Dorben Polytechnic in Bwari, he declined to speak.
.
All the subsequent calls were not picked.
.
Mrs Ogbe, who said she single-handedly brought up Michael, la­mented that she was not im­mediately informed when the incident occurred.
.
She got to the hospital to meet her son al­ready packaged for the mor­tuary.
.
She lamented that if only she was called immediately, she would have taken him to a private specialist hospital for adequate med­ical attention.
.
Mrs. Ogbe recalled that the deceased had a premo­nition of his death as he was reluctant to return to school after the mid-term break.
.
Quote “We had to force him to go on Tuesday,” she said.

“Michael was a comput­er wiz-kid. He wanted to work as a computer security expert in government or a tele­communications company,” Ogbe said, displaying a form she obtained from a school in Cana­da where he was billed to re­sume in September 2017.
.
“I miss him so much, I can’t give birth again, I don’t even have a husband, I don’t know where to start from. Life has no meaning any­more; I worked so hard for Michael.
.
"The school is so careless, they don’t take care of the students, I want justice done. I gave you a live child and you are givingme back a dead one. It wouldn’t have taken me 40 minutes to get to the school,” she lamented.
