A 400-level student of the Bayero University Kano (BUK) identified as Binta Isa has passed away.


According to NAN, Lamara Garba, deputy registrar at BUK’s public affairs directorate, confirmed this on Saturday.

He said Isa died on Friday at around 7 pm as her roommates returned to the hostel to meet her lying on the floor.

Garba said the available records indicated that the deceased had visited the campus clinic on Wednesday.


It was said that she had complained of chest pain and was prescribed some drugs.

Garba said the pain returned on Friday, when she complained to her roommates, before her eventual demise.

“The director of the university health services said late Binta Isa had previously visited the new campus clinic, on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, and complained of chest pain,” Garba wrote in a statement.


“She was diagnosed and administered with some drugs.

“The Director further explained that the deceased had responded to treatment in which she continued attending her lectures on Thursday and Friday, as well as other routine activities.

“On Friday, November 26, 2021, in the evening during Magrib prayer, she again complained of mild chest pain to her roommates, but she managed to perform ablution and prayed the Maghrib prayer in the room.”

“They raised alarm, and she was taken to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano, where she was confirmed dead.”
