LASU Debunks Rumor: Daibo Davies Not a Graduate of the Institution

LASU Disclaimer: Lagos State University (LASU) Debunks Rumour of a Man Mr. Daibo Davies who Plunged Himself into Lagos Lagoon Being a Graduate of the Institution.

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.

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.

We enjoin the media to exercise more diligence in gathering their facts before publishing reports to avoid misleading the public.
