The lack of water on the campus has driven many students to the river, but Adekunle's death has finally prompted his aggrieved colleagues to protest against the lack of potable water and the alleged neglect of students by the school authorities.
The reports revealed that the students rely on the river and other unconventional means for water.
May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
