Protest for Oluchi Anekwe's death
The students of the University of Lagos today staged a protest following the demise of one of their colleagues yesterday, and have shut down the school’s main campus.

According to reports monitored by CAMPUSDELIGHT, the students have shut the institution’s main gate, as they requested the intervention of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahman Bello, in the matter

Our correspondent interviewed some of the students, who noted that since the electrocution took place within the school premises, the school management should take responsibility for the incident.

The late student, Oluchi Anekwe, who was reportedly electrocuted on her way to her room in Sodeinde Residence, New Hall, was said to have been rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), but was pronounced dead on arrival.

During the protest, the students chanted“No VC, No going back” as they demanded Professor Bello’s presence among them.

The  memo signed by the institution’s Students Union Government (SUG) president signed by Abiodun Martins showed the students’ displeasure with the ‘unavoidable’ incident. The memo reads as follow:

The late student, Oluchi Anekwe, 


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.
