Two female Unilag students die in hotel fire


Two undergraduates of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) have been reported dead following a midnight fire at a Lagos hotel.

The deceased, Roli Odogwu, a 200-Level Mass Communication student, and Linda Elegeonye, a 300-Level Law student, died of burns, days after they were trapped in the hotel room where they were guests.
Until their death, the two students were residents of Fagunwa Hall.

According to CAMPUSLIFE, the duo left the campus on Monday to attend an evening event off-campus.

When it dawned on them that they could not return to the campus late in the night, they reportedly lodged in the hotel to pass the night.

The late Roli’s friend, who did not want to be named, said she spoke to her mother to inform her of her decision to pass the night in the hotel.

It was gathered that the victims were asleep when the inferno started from a faulty air conditioner.

CAMPUSLIFE learnt that the victims were trapped for several minutes before they were rescued from the room. They sustained first-degree burns.
