“Worried about the sad news, the Management of the Nigerian Law School conducted a full-scale investigation with the officers of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and the Nigeria Police, Bwari Division. The outcome revealed that no student or graduating student was involved in the referred road mishap that regrettably claimed some lives.
“While we commiserate with the families, relatives, and friends of those who lost their lives in the sad event, we want to use this medium to inform the general public that the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Bwari Division, CSP Biodun Makanjuola has confirmed that none of the Nigerian Law School students or graduates died in the accident.
