An Ebonyi State University (EBSU) student identified as Ikechukwu Oke, was hospitalised after allegedly engaging in fasting for 41 days.
When found, the student looked skinny and malnourished. A schoolmate revealed that he was engaged in that marathon fast because his family was facing some challenges.
Christian Nwaokpa told Punch, “he is from Ebiaji in Ezza North LGA. As it stands now, men of goodwill and ambassadors are on the way conveying him to the Accident and Emergency Ward in Federal Teaching Hospital in Abakaliki.”
This is a day after a Zambian Pastor died of malnutrition during his 30-day fast.
