The deceased is by name Adinde Odinaka Stephanie, a
200L student of English Education department and as
well as Amarachi who is in coma and Laura who wasn’t
The 3 of them are room mates in room 107 at their
KOFO hall of residence in UNILAG.
I was informed that, the accident occurred around 1:30
am as a result of an argument between Stephanie and
the man who they all went out with, while trying to
touch some parts of her body in the car while coming
back from the Island where they went to wine and dine.
Stephanie was said to be sitting in the front seat right
beside the man who was driving, and she removed the
seat-belt in the course of the argument, resisting the
man from touching her body.
Stephanie just met the man in front of her hostel
yesterday on her way to over night reading. And after
few words, she agreed to go out with the man and not
without her friends. She went back into the hostel to
invite Amarachi and Laura.
Amarachi, Laura and the man are currently under
medical attentions in a Lagos hospital.
In as much as we pray for the repose of Stephanie’s soul
and God grants those in treatment quick recovery, we
really need to be careful not just about the people we
follow, but also about drinking and driving late at night.
If you are going out especially late at night always
ensure the person driving hasn’t had excess liquor at his
disposal. Please its not only following strangers,
following your friends to could be dangerous, just like in
the case of Funmi last year. And above all God is very
key in matters of our life.
Stephanie has left her room mates in tears, i can only
imagine the river of tears her entire family will shed.
God help us all!!
May the Lord grant her soul a peaceful rest and lay healing hands on the survivals
