Panic engulfed Ramat Polytechnic in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on Monday, when a male lecturer suddenly slumped while taking a general studies class.
The incident which occurred at about 8: 30am, caused confusion as many students rushed out of the lecture hall. Some quickly rushed the lecturer to the school clinic.
Our source, a student, who spoke on condition of anonymity said such scenario was becoming a norm in the institution.
He attributed the situation to the over-crowding of the hall, saying often time, a large number of students receive lectures under unhealthy conditions.
“It happens regularly in the school. Sometimes we have two or more students passing out within a week. It is terrible. We need more buildings on the campus to ease this hardship.”
On the state of the lecturer, the source said he was resuscitated at the clinic but has yet resumed duties.
