A 300level student of accounting, Oluchi Anekwe, was yesterday, electrocuted on her way to her room in Sodeinde Residence, New Hall on the campus.

Oluchi, who hails from Aku in Enugu state, was reportedly electrocuted when a high tension wire fell on her in front of the Sodeinde hall of residence in the campus. She was immediately rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Aggrieved students of University Lagos (UNILAG) thus trooped out to protest the death of their colleague today and have reportedly barricaded the main gate of the university to express their grievances. The aggrieved students have thus prevented vehicles from moving in and out of the school.

The students have however asked the Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahman Bello, to intervene in the matter, as it occurred within the school’s premises.

Some of the students have also took to the social media to express their displeasure about the incidence. It was said that the deceased is a first class student of the school.

President of the UNILAG Students’ Union Government (SUG), Abiodun Martins, have expressed the students’ displeasure over ‘unavoidable’ incident in a memo which reads thus:

Protesting UNILAG students

GREATEST AKOKITES!!!

The University of Lagos Students’ Union regrets to announce the passing away of one of us, our very own OLUCHI ANEKWE, a 300 level student of the department of Accounting.

Oluchi, till her death, was a first class student, and a very active student in class.

Our condolence goes to her families, relatives and friends. We pray that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.

The event that led to her death is in its entirety avoidable. We hereby call on all concerned authorities to swing into action so as to prevent future occurrence.

In this regard, we hereby declare that all academic and social activities of the school and of the students’ are hereby suspended for today and no unnecessary sound around the campus in honour of the lost soul.

The entire University of Lagos Students loved her, but God in His wisdom saw fit to embrace her.
