16-yr-old prospective medical student, dies after passing UTME and Post UTME
A 16 year old boy has died, days after passing his Post UTME to study Medicine and Surgery at the University of Ilorin. In a mail sent to SDK, his relative wrote: ”The person in subject was a close relation of mine, his name was Mubarak Razak by name and 16 years.
He applied for Medicine and Surgery at University of Ilorin after being denied admission last year when he applied for Anatomy scoring 206 in UTME, immediately after graduating in a private secondary school in Ilorin, Kwara state.
He then struggled to have a better UTME score, 327, this year and passed POST-JAMB excellently scoring 72% when he suddenly died after a brief illness last week Saturday night.
He was survived by 3 siblings, his father, a civil servant(Mr Razak Owolabi) and Mother,a government school teacher(Mrs Aminat Razak). I just taught I should share this story because to me he left an indelible mark in this world, he was a nice, quiet boy and so young. And I believe that it’s not how far you go in life but how well.”
