Ikechukwu Oke, an undergraduate student of the Ebonyi State University (EBSU), has been hospitalised after fasting and praying for forty-one days.
According to one of the students of the institution, Christian Nwaokpa, Oke decided to embark on the fasting bcause of the challenges facing his family.
“He is from Ebiaji in Ezza North LGA. It is his nature to fast and pray. As it stands now, men of goodwill and ambassadors are on the way conveying him to the Accident and Emergency Ward in the Federal Teaching Hospital in Abakaliki,” Nwaokpa stated.
