    Management from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho
    (Osun state).
  2. The deceased registered at the Batch B orientation camp, Kano on Friday, November 25, 2016.
  3. On November 27 at 5pm, she appeared at the camp clinic with
    complaints of headache and fever which she said she had been
    experiencing for two days.
  4. The doctors at the camp clinic treated her with Arthmeter 160 mg,
    Piriton tablet and paracetamol for fever and malaria and she was
    released to go back to the hostel.
  5. At about 3am on Monday, November 28, 2016, Ifedolapo was brought
    back to the camp clinic by fellow Corps members with complaints of
    vomiting and general body pains.
  6. Examinations carried out by the doctors on night duty revealed that
    rashes on her legs had increased but the deceased dismissed the fact to
    be the reaction from usage of second hand clothes/knicker without first
    time washing.
  7. She was thereafter admitted at the Camp clinic and treated with
    Drazamol injection and Piriton to soothe her body pains as she was
    already on malaria drugs.
  8. At 8am on Monday, November 28, 2016, Dr. Morowei Woyingo
    administered hydrocortisone 200 mg after examining the deceased and
    inquired about any history of food or drug allergy which could have
    resulted in the rashes.
  9. After some hours, the deceased complained to the doctor that she had
    not urinated for some time and this hastened her referral to Gwarzo
    General Hospital by 4pm.
  10. On the trip to Gwarzo General Hospital, she was accompanied by two
    doctors from the camp clinic including the CMD and the nurse on duty.
  11. They arrived at the hospital 30 minutes later and met doctor Iman
    Ibrahim who immediately ordered for full blood count, kidney infection
    test, hepatitis and HIV.
  12. From the result of the test, the doctor concluded that Ifedolapo had
    kidney infection probably due to untreated urinary tract infection.
  13. Since the potassium level in her system was high, she required
    immediate dialysis which was only available at the Aminu Kano Teaching
    Hospital about 2 hours’ drive away. The doctors decided to stabilize her
    by administering Gluconate overnight to survive the grueling journey.
  14. The deceased responded well until about 2am on Tuesday, November 29,
    2016, when her condition worsened, and her body began to show
    noticeable signs of fluid retention. She was placed on oxygen to
    stabilize her for the journey to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital when she
    finally died about 4am.
