As lots of Nigerians were busy celebrating the peaceful co-existence and independence of the nation, the University of Benin, on the other hand got a sad story that cut short their independence day celebration.
Elizabeth Omanije, a 300-level Law student of the University was said to have lost her life in an autocrash which also claimed the lives of her parents.
A Memo from the School’s SUG Public Relations Officer, reads;
*NOTICE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER*
STUDENTS UNION GOVERNMENT
It is our prayer that her gentle soul rest in perfect peace. Amen
On the same note, we pray that God will guide and protect UNIBEN STUDENTS.
