“A declaration that officers of the 1st defendants breached their duty to the late Ifedolapo Racheal Oladepo by their failure to refer the deceased to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital when the adequate facilities to cater for the deceased’s health condition were not available at the NYSC Kano Orientation Camp Clinic.”
