Panic In UNILAG as Students Contract COVID-19

The main campus of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, has been thrown into panic as some unidentified students have reportedly contracted the coronavirus disease.

The university’s vice-chancellor, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, who neither confirmed nor denied the report, revealed to media house Premium Times on phone conversation that the institution’s management was in a meeting over the matter.

Mr Ogundipe said the institution would soon make its position on the issue public.

We are already in a management meeting. We will speak on it soon,” he told our reporter.

Meanwhile, this newspaper’s independent findings revealed that a sophomore female Law student is one of the confirmed cases.

We learnt she was taken to the counselling unit before being taken to an isolation centre,” a classmate of the infected student, who does not want to be quoted, told Premium Times on the phone.

Other students also said the university authorities became more forceful and strict with the enforcement of coronavirus protocols on Tuesday.

Departmental heads and deans of faculties were said to be moving round the classrooms to ensure compliance with the use of nose masks and sanitisers.

The dean of the faculty of law, Ige Bolodeoku, was said to have moved from one classroom to another at the faculty to compel both staff and students to obey the rules.
