A University of Lagos Student identified as Tope has been reported to have died at the institution’s Medical Centre after she didn’t get prompt medical attention.
PUNCH reports that one of the students at Moremi Hall where the deceased resides, said she started gasping after returning from a nightclub around midnight.
“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,’’ the student said.
The report stated that other students alleged that she went out with a man that day.
In a swift reaction, the university, in a statement by its Deputy Registrar, Information Unit, Toyin Adebule, said that the deceased was brought to the centre dead.
“I wish to state that the incident did not happen at the centre. Also, there is no report from the hall to the Dean of Students Affairs on the incident. Therefore, no student has been ejected from the hall,” the statement read in part.
