UNILAG student slumps, dies after night out

Tragedy has stuck at the Moremi Hall of
the University of Lagos after a Chemistry
Education student , identified simply as
Tope , slumped and died at the
institution ’s medical centre .
Sources in UNILAG said the student , who
was squatting in the hostel , died shortly
after returning from an outing with a
man .
They added that Tope could have been
saved if she was promptly attended to at
the centre .
One of them said , “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 . ’’
However , the management of the
university said no student died at the
centre . A statement from the school ’ s
Deputy Registrar , Information Unit , Mr .
Toyin Adebule , said Tope died before she
was brought to the centre .
“ 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 .
