The student in question is said to have experienced a continuous three-day ‘standing ovation’ before succumbing.
The young learner identified as Omondi Okello had complained of lower abdominal pains and constant ‘standing ovations’, the matter was reported by the institution dean and he was taken to the hospital for further examinations and treatment.
According to reports shared by the area police, Okello died at Shepherd Hospital a day after being admitted.
The reports further stated that Okello started complaining of the pains after reportedly attending a party in the company of other five students from the University.
It is said that no sooner had he finished having the meals did he start complaining of lower abdominal pains.
The deceased’s family was informed and the burial arrangements are underway as the police probe what exactly led to the death of the young university student.
