announces the sudden death of Miss Effiong Deborah Imarbong, a 100 Level
student in our Faculty of Law on Monday, May 1, 2017 at the University
College Hospital, Ibadan.
“Her sudden death, however, remains a
mystery. It is in the light of the above that the university management
wishes to state that the cause(s) of her death are still being
investigated by the appropriate authorities. Moreover, her parents had
been duly contacted by the relevant key officers of the university on
the loss.
“It is pertinent to state that by the tradition of the
Queen Elizabeth II Hall where she was a resident, an event tagged
‘Freshers/Finalists’ Week’’ was organised by the hall’s Executive
Council.
“Her colleagues reported that the deceased was seen at the hall cafeteria, the venue of the movie show.
“Furthermore,
it was reported that she was seen at about 8.40pm.  Thereafter, she
received a telephone call from a fellow; she left the venue of the movie
show to meet the caller. The fellow had been identified after her death
by the Campus Security Service.”

Imarbong became hyperactive and developed strange attitude after
returning to the hall and left the venue after a wild dance.“It was
further revealed that she left the venue of the movie show and,
thereafter, there was a bang, which her colleagues explained, she jumped
from a dangerous position in the Hall.  She was later found by her
colleagues in a seemingly helpless condition in the precinct of the
hall,” the statement said.

The deceased was rushed to the UCH where effort to safe her live proved futile.
