I Warned Her; Friend Of UNILAG Girl Who Died After Night Out With Man

A friend of the late 100-Level Chemistry Education student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Temitope Aminat Omolara, who died in mysterious circumstances, has spoken of how she warned the deceased to stop going to clubs.

The late Omolara died last week, days after she allegedly followed a man to a club. She vomited blood before she died, it was said.

The deceased’s friend, who simply gave her name as Olanike, said she had warned her several times, but said her advice fell on deaf ears.

Olanike attended Gbaja Senior Girls Secondary School in Surulere with the late Omolara.

She said the deceased was brilliant while in secondary school, noting that her character changed after they were both admitted into university.

She said: “I called her when she started going out at nights, but she would say she needed to socialise.”

Some students in her department believed the late Temitope may have died of what they called spiritual attack, while other said the death may be as a result of food poison.

A member of Moremi Hall Executive, who preferred not to be named, said the late Temitope started vomiting blood several hours after she returned from club.

She said: “There was nothing we can link her death to, because she did not show any sign of illness prior to the incident. We are suspecting she may have been poisoned from wherever she went to. She was taken to the medical centre immediately she started vomiting blood. But, she asked to be taken to another hospital.

“A guy, who seems to be her friend or brother, came to pick her up from the hostel and from there, we don’t know what actually transpired along the line.”
