Wild drama as UNILAG student slumps to death after night out on campus

A report has shown that serious tragedy has stuck at the Moremi Hall of the University of Lagos after a Chemistry Education student, identified simply as Tope, slumped and died at the institution’s medical centre after a night out on campus.
Sources in UNILAG said the student, who was squatting in the hostel, died shortly after returning to campus from an outing with a man.
They added that Tope could have been saved if she was promptly attended to at the centre.
One of them said, “Tope was squatting here. She went to a club and returned around midnight on Thursday. 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.’’
However, the management of the university said no student died at the centre. A statement from the school’s Deputy Registrar, Information Unit, Mr. Toyin Adebule, said Tope died before she was brought to the centre.
“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,” the statement read in part.

Tragic! 18-year-old Nigerian student shot dead in London

An 18-year-old Nigerian student was shot dead as he cycled through an east London estate on Sunday, March 19th. David Adegbite, was ambushed by a gang who surrounded him in a car park in Barking before shooting him in the head shortly after 7pm as children played nearby.

Local officers, firearms officer and London Ambulance Service rushed to the scene and the former Havering College student was taken to the hospital where he died at 10.30PM.

Better known by his nickname “Dutch” Adegbite studied IT at the college in Plaistow and dabbled in making music in his spare time. In fact, the young Arsenal fan was looking forward to studying at Middlesex University in the autumn.

Friends described him as a “loving, family boy” who was “in the wrong place at the wrong time”.
An 18-year-old, who gave her name as Mary, said: “He was such a smart guy, really clever and good at maths, he was due to start university.

“He was no gangster or drug dealer, he was a good family guy. He always talked about how much he loved his mother and wanted to make her proud.  “He was popular with everyone. I just can’t believe there are people out there in London with guns, you expect it in America  but not here.”
Speaking outside his home in Dagenham, a relative of Mr Adegbite said the family were “very, very devastated” by his death.
Friends lay flowers near the scene of the shooting which spelled out his nickname Dutch in front of the floral tributes.
One said: “He was not aggressive at all. He was just funny. He was a good footballer at school and was always well liked. He didn’t appear to have any enemies, he was a peaceable sort of guy. He was very cool.”
Another said: “He was a good friend and a good guy. We were planning to go to university together and he was going to do ICT (information and communications technology). He was a bright happy person, this does not make any to any of us.”
The 18-year-old Nigerian student went to Dagenham Park school before attending Havering College where his friends said he did well in his A level.
He was visiting friends when he was killed and had previously lived on the estate.
Two 20-year-old men was arrested on Monday and remains in custody at a south London police station. A second 20-year was arrested on Sunday in connection with the shooting, but has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Shocking! Popular native doctor dies on top of prostitute during sex romp in Imo brothel

There was wild drama in Anara, a satellite town in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State on Thursday, when a popular native doctor in the area reportedly died on top of a commercial s*x worker in the town, Punch reports.
According to eyewitnesses, the native doctor, who was identified as Lambert Osigwe, died while having s*x with a prostitute whose name was given as Onyinye Nwosu in a local brothel in Anara main market.
Eyewitnesses recounted that the victim was a regular customer of the harlot who had allegedly offered to give him free s*x that day when he said he had no money.
An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said, “Onyinye Nwosu is a whore who plies her trade in a local brothel in Anara, Isiala Mbano LGA and one Mr. Lambert was one of her good customers whose patronage kept her in the business.
 
“Most times and for unknown reasons, he came to buy used condoms with sperm from the prostitutes and at the same time, patronised his regular customer, Onyinye. On this fateful day, he just came for nothing because according to him, he had no money.
 
“But Onyinye still offered him free s*x service. The man started the enjoyment but could not finish as he suddenly started shaking and jerking, and eventually died on top of the harlot.”
He explained that the brothel management held the prostitute to explain what happened as she was accused of using charms on the unfortunate Lambart. They quickly called the Divisional Police Officer, Anara, who came with a team of police officers and detained her in their outpost cell. They later removed the corpse and deposited it at St. Kizito Mortuary, Amaraku in Isiala Mbano LGA of Imo State.
It was learnt that Osigwe hailed from Umuezeala-Ama in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of the state and had his dreaded shrine situated in his ancestral home, where people trooped in to consult him for mystical solutions .
It was discovered that the death of the man had sent shock wave into the spines of the people doing business within and around the area and out of fear, all the commercial s*x workers had fled the area.
Reports revealed that the deceased’s major customers were Internet fraudsters, popularly known as ‘yahoo yahoo’ boys, who reportedly used his charms to get at their targets.
