Students of the Federal University Lokoja on Friday protested at the Adankolo campus over the death of a female student involved in a motor accident. The accident occured at about 6 pm on Thursday evening when the 300 level female student by the name of Mary Jane, of the Geography department, was returning from Felele campus back town. An eye witness said, she was hit by a J5 motor along Felele road at about 6 pm on a commercial bike while returning from school after her lectures. This is said to be the second death recorded from the same department. Her death prompted the demonstration by the students on Friday, calling for urgent action from the management of the school. The students appealed to the authority as a matter of urgency to construct speed bumps to minimizing recurring accidents on the highway.
