Four Students of Lead City University, Ibadan Die in Car Crash



Sad news reaching us is that four students of Lead City University, a private university in Ibadan, Oyo State died in a car crash in the early hours of today. The accident occurred along Ring Road, Ibadan.

It was reported that the students were  heading to Koko Dome night club for a party hosted by students of the University when the car they were riding in hit another car and somersaulted multiple times. Six friends were involved in the accident, but four of them have passed on while two remain in critical condition.

May their souls Rest In Peace. Our prayers are with the families of the students and the entire University.

    Driving under the influence of alcohol is unacceptable. Today two guys who plays for the Dallas Cowboys got involved in a terrible accident here in Dallas, the driver who is under the influence of alcohol according to police, is safe but his friend who is on the passenger seat died. Just for a couple of minutes pleasure, its not worth it at all. The danger of driving under the influence is that you don’t only put yourself at risk, you put others as well. The driver is now been charged with intoxication manslaughter, trust me he’s done for life they will put him in jail and throw away the keys for life. May God help us all

    blood of Jesus! this looks gruesome. i hope the other two people make it. i refuse to ride in cars with young boys/men, especially when they r going out to have “fun” or coming back from a fun-filled event. the euphoria they feel when driving makes them speed and think they’re invincible. i’ve lost a couple of male friends because of reckless “cool” driving, but you rarely hear of young girls dying from accident. people need to be careful when driving, especially young people.

      @Iffy, not really. Besides the fact that death can come at anytime, there isn’t any other lesson.
      We don’t know the cause of the accident. It could have been mechanical (brakes failed etc), medical (the driver may have had a seizure behind the wheels), the driver may have also been under the influence, something may have been in the middle of the road.
      Point is, we don’t know the cause. Till then we can’t assume anything.

    May their souls rest in peace. Bellanaija I have a comment. This accident happened this morning. I don’t think it’s fair to put up their pictures immediately. I can bet u that some of their families have not heard about this accident and I can imagine them finding out this way. It will be very devastating. I almost had a heart attack when I saw this cos my brother attends that school. Reminds me of a man who found out about his son’s death on facebook. Abeg, let us try to be considerate. Think about their families biko.

      My thoughts too. Generally, there has got to be some process of reaching families first or at least some down time before rushing off to press/print/social media.

    Oh dear God, how terrible and sad. I can’t imagine the pain of those who they’ve left behind, especially, when you think of how young they all were.

    To all those who’ve commented about them “flexing” and enjoying the good life too early… I remember what it was like being a young undergrad in Nigeria and sometimes young people make really bad judgement calls but we don’t really know enough to say this or that was exactly why they died. Just pray that your own loved ones are safe when you hear news like this and certainly advise young people on the dangers of driving under the influence but don’t assume out loud about the cause of their death.
