A statement by the University’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kunle Akogun, on behalf of the management, described the incident as “a most horrible way to die, especially for a promising young lady who had every opportunity before her to make it
big in life”.

inculcated in them, could have associated with such an undesirable element of a supposed
boy friend, and even went ahead to take the extreme step of taking her own life”, the University management lamented.
