Mr Garba said the student died on Friday around 7:00 p.m., after an illness.

He said that available record indicated that the deceased had visited the new campus clinic last week Wednesday and complained of chest pain.

“She was diagnosed and some drugs prescribed for the ailment.

“The clinic officials revealed that she had responded to the treatment and continued attending her lectures on Thursday and Friday,” he said.
