A student of the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO) has died on her way to the hospital after collapsing at the institute’s hostel in Lagos.

An official of the institute told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the woman, simply identified as Tina, died while being taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

The official, who pleaded anonymity, said Tina, until her death, was a staff of Abuja office of the institute.

“Tina has been very ill and needed some financial assistance to get medical attention. “The management had granted her permission to go for treatment and had also promised her some financial assistance before she died,’’ the official said.

According to the officer, the deceased, who hailed from the Northern part of the country, has been on medication for an undisclosed ailment.

A top official of the institute, who also did not want to be identified, however, confirmed the student’s death.
