The Lagos State University, LASU, has debunked claims that Daibo Davies – the young man who plunged into the Lagos lagoon was a student of the varsity.
“The attention of the Lagos State University Management has been drawn to media reports stating that Mr. Daibo Davies, the young man who plunged into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State recently was a fresh graduate of Quantity Surveying from the Lagos State University,” a statement from the Coordinator, Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations, Lagos State University, Ademola Adekoya reads.
“While the University sympathizes with the family and and relations of the Mr. Davies on the unfortunate incident, we find it pertinent to correct the media reports crediting his studentship to the Lagos State University.”
The General Public is hereby informed that Mr. Davies was not a graduate of Lagos State University as reported. As a matter of fact, LASU does not currently run a programme in Quantity Surveying, the course from which Mr. Davies reportedly bagged a degree. The public is therefore urged to disregard that part of the story.
The management however enjoined the media to exercise more diligence in gathering their facts before publishing reports to avoid misleading the public.
