Nigerian Medical Students Stranded After Hurricane Maria Devastation

Over 150 Nigerian medical students are stranded in the Dominican Republic after the devastating effect of hurricane Maria.

The students, studying at the All Saints University Medical College, have been left in the cold with no official assistance forthcoming since the hurricane struck on Monday. Many of them are said to have lost virtually all their belongings.

Link opened for communication by the government of Dominica allows only text messages for foreigners, especially students. The medical campus, whose main institution is in Canada is said to have opened channels for the American and Canadian government to evacuate their citizens.

It was further learnt that the same measure is being taken by other countries like Jamaica, Britain, France, Germany and China, pending when the institution would be rehabilitated. Reports classified the extent of the destruction as category five scale.

The Hurricane Maria slammed into the lsland of Dominica in the early hours of Monday and removed over 82 percent of the roofs of buildings, including that of the official residence of the Prime Minister.

Saturday Sun, however, gathered that arrangements were being made by the institution to relocate the Nigerian students to a neighbouring country , Saint Vincent.

As of now, the relief materials being shipped into the beleaguered nation are specifically for the citizens, leaving foreign students to their fate.

  1. I really don't believe this for some reason. Relief materials for citizens? Hmmm,

  2. This is bad news. May God send them help soon

  3. Huh my cousin is a student there
    Wait let me call his mum

  4. They had better find solution for themselves beacuse Nigeria government doesn't have its citien at heart.

  5. Stella, there are two separate countries in the Caribbean, one in the Western Caribbean called Dominican Republic, the other in the Eastern Caribbean called Dominica, pronounced, Dom-me-neeka. They are two separate countries very far apart, and your story is about the country in the Eastern Caribbean which is Dominica.

  6. That school though! A Nigerian is the owner , the last time I checked! He should do something not after all the money they pay for tuttion every semester
