The management of University of Lagos, UNILAG has denied reports
making the rounds that a Chemistry Education student, identified only as
Tope, slumped and died at the institution’s medical centre.
Reports had it that tragedy stuck at the Moremi Hall of the
University at the weekend after the student, who was squatting in the
hostel, died shortly after returning from an outing with a man, alleged
to be her sugar daddy ( READ IT HERE ).
The report also stated that Tope could have been saved if she was promptly attended to at the centre.
A source spoke with the Punch saying, “Tope was squatting here. She went to a club and returned around midnight on Friday.
“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.”
But the management of the university said no student died at the centre.

was brought to the centre.
The statement read in part, “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.”
