UNILAG is never far from drama. Just this week, a UNILAG Diploma student allegedly poured hot soup on her roommate because the poor girl used her pot to cook. It is believed that the victim actually asked for the pot. The story also has it that the offender was arrested by the school security but later released and she has absconded.
A YNaija reporter was at the school today to get more information about the incident. At the security post, the officer on duty denied knowledge about the incident and as such, said he couldn’t comment on it. A few other students said they didn’t know about the bizarre story, as they are freshers trying to finish up their registration processes (UNILAG’s regular students are on break right now).
However, when we spoke to Andrew Ekphiwre, a final year student of Mass Communication, he said the incident actually happened. Although he was too busy to talk to us, he directed us to some of his tweets about the incident. Andrew tweets with the handle, @DrewBaba and some of his tweets on this hot soup story included: “She Got Bathed With The Soup for using her room-mates pot to cook without permission. She has been said to have been involved in several altercations with that particular room-mate”.
Although there were unconfirmed stories about her snatching her roommate’s boyfriend, this seems to be the most authentic version for now.
YNaija will keep track on updates on yet another sad tale from our universities.
