A 100 level student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) identified as Temitope Omolara died on Thursday, March 23rd after she allegedly went out with an unidentified man.
According to reports, the deceased returned to the campus after the outing feeling sick and vomiting blood.
The Chemistry Education student was said to have finally died at an undisclosed hospital outside the campus on Thursday and her remains buried on Friday, March 25th.
A student revealed:
Tope was squatting here. She went to a club and returned around midnight on Thursday. It was not long afterwards that she started gasping. We rushed her to the UNILAG Medical Centre, but they blamed the student who allowed her to squat in her room. Tope eventually died, while the other student is being threatened with eviction.
Details of the circumstances leading to her death are still unclear but while reacting to a tweet which alleged that the student had died at the university’s medical centre, Mr Toyin Adewole, Public Relations Officer of the university, said:
Information available so far indicates that she called someone (some say, relations, others say male) to come and pick her from the hall. Later information filtered into the hall that she had died.
I wish to state that the story about the Medical Centre is false. Definitely, the incident did not happen in the medical centre contrary to the claim in the Twitter massage. Lastly, there is no formal report from the hall to the DSA on the incident. Therefore, no action could have been taken to eject the bona fide student as claimed. Let me state categorically here that no student has been ejected from the hall over this matter. At this moment our thoughts are with the family.
