There was confusion on Wednesday at the University of Lagos, Akoka, Lagos State, as students went on the rampage after a female student got electrocuted in the institution on Tuesday night.
Both entrances to the campus have been blocked, and there is heavy security presence everywhere. The students are protesting the death of a fellow student, Miss Oluchi Anekwe, a 300 level Accounting student died on Tuesday night, after being electrocuted to death when a high-voltage wire fell on her in the school campus yesterday. The students blame the school management for her death, saying if the live wire that fell on her had been attended to, her death would have been avoided. The students say the poor maintenance of facilities, equipment and wires in the school is responsible for this horrid incident.
The Students Union have cancelled all student academic & social activities for the day, in her honor.
