The International Staff School of the Lagos State University of Science and Technology wishes to commiserate with the family of Abdurahman Dauda, one of our pupils who was involved in an unfortunate incident that led to his untimely death.

This statement is necessary to state the current situation to the public for record purposes.

The situation is regrettable.
