An Accounting teacher, Lukuman Nasiru, has been admitted to the hospital in Ibadan after he slumped and sustained a head injury in the classroom on Tuesday while teaching his students at Saint Luke’s Grammar School, Molete.
It will be recalled that the non-payment of civil servants’ salaries in Oyo State since November, 2015, has triggered hunger and despair in the state.
Mr. Nasiru was said to be on admission at Molete Health Care Centre, and his wife, Modupe, in an interview said the family was in need and was going through hardship.
“My husband has been vomiting blood since morning when he collapsed. This situation has made him unconscious since then. There is no money to take him to a standard hospital for proper medical attention for now and we don’t have anybody to run to for assistance.
“Our two children are even staying with my mother when we could not afford to take care of them as a result of my husband’s salaries that have not been paid. I appeal to well meaning people to come to our aid and help save the life of my husband,” she said.
