According to the OCF leader, there should be respect for lives and this should be sacrosanct.   “These young men and women are leaders of tomorrow and their lives matter.

The socio-cultural group also expressed its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late student,  the Vice Chancellor,   staff and students of the institution . “ May the Almighty God give them the fortitude to bear the loss.  It is always painful to hear of the death of a young person especially considering the circumstances and manner of death.”
