The management of Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has advised new students to stay away from night parties.
NAN reports that Joe Ejiofor, the spokesperson of YABATECH, gave the advice shortly after the students’ matriculation.
In a statement on Thursday, Ejiofor said such gatherings could expose the newly admitted students to unpredictable situations that might lead to danger.
The public relations officer (PRO) added that the safety and academic progress of the general students were top priorities of the management of the college.
“As part of the management’s commitment to your well-being and success, I would like to bring to your attention an important matter regarding late-night matriculation parties,” he said.
“While it is understandable that campus life provides numerous opportunities for socialising and building connections, we must remind you of the potential dangers associated with attending parties at odd hours.
“You are, therefore, warned in your interest to stay away from any night parties planned after matriculation.”
In December, an ex-student of YABATECH was shot dead in what was attributed to a cult clash. The victim, identified as Kenneth, was gunned down in the school.
A student, a male HND1 Graphics student of YABATECH, was also killed in the college on September 15, 2022.
