A statement by the school union is below.

“Heritage Ajibola, the Linguistics and African Languages student who accidentally fell into the soakaway this afternoon at Byer Hostel, Maintenance Hostels, is confirmed dead!
This incident is highly unfortunate. The Union mourns her. May her soul rest in peace. May God give her family, friends and course mates the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
It must be noted that Heritage’s death was avoidable if the soakaway system was properly constructed and covered. It is saddening that this has happened despite the huge amounts of money paid by students for rent. The Management of the Hostel must answer for the death of Heritage. The Union is immediately demanding justice for Heritage, with a view to forestalling a possible reoccurrence of this”
