Abuja Brickhall School: Autopsy Report Of 4-Year-Old Miguel Revealed

The findings from the autopsy of Miguel Ovoke, a 4-year-old student at Brickhall School in Abuja who passed away on April 24, 2024, have been disclosed.

The report, which was released by the management of the school on Friday, revealed that the pupil died after choking on a piece of meat in his homemade lunch.

Recall that the incident occurred during the school’s lunch break. The incident triggered controversy on social media.

According to the school’s statement, Miguel started choking on the meat in his lunch, which consisted of rice, stew, plantain and assorted meat.

Subsequently, the hospital issued a medical report saying that the cause of death was asphyxiation.
