Lekeufack Cabrel, student of GBHS Nkol-Eton died shortly after taking part in morning sports organized by the school.
Friday January 24, 2020, a witness told this reporter that Cabrel, 16, was an asthma patient.
He collapsed during sports but died after their school nurse delayed attending to him.
“The nurse prevented us from putting him on the bed in the infirmary because he was dirty”, the source said.
After Cabral’s death, students mobilized to give the nurse a mob beating. She was only rescued by the intervention of security officers deployed to the hospital.
