Management of Lagos State University has termed as untrue the report that Daibo Davies, who died after jumping into Lagos lagoon, was a graduate of the institution.
The institution’s Coordinator, Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations, Mr. Ademola Adekoya addressed the misconception in a statement in Lagos on Thursday.
According to him, the institution LASU does not currently run a programme in Quantity Surveying, the programme which the now late Davies reportedly studied.
He said; “The attention of the management has been drawn to media reports stating that the young man, who jumped into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos recently, was a fresh graduate of Quantity Surveying from the Lagos State University.
“While the university sympathises with the family and relations of the Davies on the unfortunate incident, we find it pertinent to correct the media reports crediting his studentship to LASU.
“We enjoin the media to exercise more diligence in gathering their facts before publishing reports to avoid misleading the public,” Adekoya added.
