The family of a deceased student of Yabatech, Lagos might fork out almost a million naira to obtain the corpse of their child.
Kotun Kayode Kazeem
Following the death of a Yaba College of Technology student, Kotun Kayode Kazeem, the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) has refused to release the corpse unless the sum of N800,000 is paid by his family.
The bill was said to be for all the treatment he received from the day of the accident which occurred on Sunday, August 20, till the day he died on Saturday, September 9.
A student of the school identified as Adio Emmanuel Olusegun Adeyemi, took to his Facebook profile on Sunday, September 10, to condemn the hospital for asking for that amount of money before releasing the corpse of late Kazeem.
“*LUTH TO RELEASE YABATECH STUDENT CORPSE FOR N800,000
(KOTUN KAYODE KAZEEM).
Kazeem is a Banking & Finance Student (HND1 Yaba College of Technology).
He was involved in an accident on the 20th of August 2017 while he was in a Keke Napep heading to his house. He was busy reading in the tricycle because of the fear of YABATECH exam. Ever since then he has been in a state of COMA It is very unfortunate, we lost Kazeem yesterday (9th of September 2017 in that popular hospital called LUTH. As it stands, LUTH says we must pay N800,000 before his body would be released. Where do we see that huge amount of money in Nigeria? This is uncalled for…
