|Elegushi beach in its splendour|
Students of unilag (medical school) came to the beach in company of some lecturers last week friday. At around 7.30 - 8 o clock in the evening, some of the students went to play along the shoreline in the dark. Only the people present know what happened.
We the staff of elegushi beach, acted swiftly the moment we heard students shouting.
By the time we got to the beach front we could not do anything because there was zero visibility.
We waited all night hoping her body will show up, which it did the next day on saturday around 3.30 and her lecturers where contacted.
It is general knowledge,a policy and a standard practice that once its 7 oclock everyone is asked to vacate the shoreline.
This was an unfortunate sad event and we mourn with the Abiola family.
The issue of unilag students drowning at elegushi beach is totally false, till date this is the second incident of a unilag student drowning at the beach. The efforts made by the staff of the beach on both ocassion has been commended by different security authorities.
Issues of Security is not taken lightly and is of uptmost importance to Elegushi beach beacause it is what she prides herself on.
Elegushi beach is a hub of entertainment for all youths and top of our clientele are all under grads of various institutions in the country.
I hope this issue would be laid to rest in respect of the departed.
May the lord forgive her sins and welcome her into paradise..
