LAGOS FEBRUARY 22ND (URHOBOTODAY)-Hell was let loose yesterday in the premises of Delta State University (DELSU) Abraka, Delta State, when a male graduating student of the school was shot dead while celebrating his graduation with his friend in a drinking bar.
In another incident on the same day, a female student who was also celebrating her graduation was poured a substance suspected to be acid.

Urhobotoday reliably gathered that the shooting of the male graduating student which took place at about 7.00 pm yesterday in a drinking bar not far away from campus 11 of the University brought fear into many graduating students who have to stop their celebration for the fear of being attacked.
According to an eye withess who identified himself as James, “We were drinking here in the bar when all of a suddenly, some guys came in and started looking around as if they were looking for somebody. Then one of them brought out a gun and shot into the air and we all ran away only to come back in a few minutes later to find a graduating student lying dead on the pool of his own blood.”
As at press time the name and department of the dead student could not be confirmed.
Another student who did not want his names on print conferred on Urhobotoday that graduation ceremony in Delta State University had always ended in one ugly incident or he other every year. He, however, suggested that the school authority should henceforth stop celebration of graduation ceremonies in the school.
In his words, “It is like all graduation celebrations in this school always end in killing. I wish to
call on the school authority to cancel graduation celebration if that is what will bring peace into this school”.
In another development, a graduating female student of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, Campus III was bathed with an acid while celebrating her graduation ceremony with friends.
“A student of DELSU, the graduating female student whose identity had not been confirmed was dancing in a bar and people were pouring water on her which was one of the normal ways of celebrating graduation in the school.
“In the course of the celebration, another female student came in with a bottle containing substance suspected to be acid and poured it on the graduating female student. It was when her body started iching her that she realized that something else had been poured on her. She was taken to a nearby clinic before she was referred to an undisclosed hospital”, Uche a student of DELSU told Urhobotoday..
