Oyo: Teacher Slumps While Teaching in Class


By Adeola Oladele, Ibadan

The unexpected happened when a secondary school teacher working at Saint Lukes Grammar School, Molete, Ibadan, Mr Nasiru Lukuman, reportedly slumped and sustained injury on his head while teaching in the classroom.

Mr Lukuman, 37, an Accounting Teacher, was said to have collapsed while teaching SS2 students in the class and was rushed to the nearby Molete Health Care Centre around 10 am on Tuesday.

He was said to have been bleeding profusely since morning when the incident happened and has also since become unconscious.

While speaking on the incident, the wife of the victim, Mrs. Modupe, who could not control her emotion, appealed to well-meaning individuals and government to come to her family’s aid by facilitating the transfer of her husband to a standard hospital for adequate treatment as his condition presently is critical.

According to her, “My husband has been vomiting blood since morning when he collapsed and has become unconscious since then. There is no money to take him to a standard hospital for proper medical attention for now and we don’t have anybody to run to for assistance.

“Our two children are even staying with my mother when we could not afford money to take care of them as a result of my husband’s salaries that have not been paid for over five months. I appeal to well meaning people to come and assist us to save the life of my husband,” she said.

However, a member of the Oyo State House of Assembly representing Ibadan South East Local Government, Hon. Ademola Akeem Ige, had visited the victim in the hospital where he is receiving treatment and has given him financial assistance with a call on other individuals to come to his aid so that he could be given proper medical attention.

In a related development, another Vice-Principal in the same school, Mr Emmanuel Olajide, was also reported to have died last week as a result of hunger.
