Authorities of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), have denied a report that students of the institution staged a protest over the death of their colleague due to negligence after he was taken to hospital.
The University, in a statement issued on Monday in Benin by its Public Relations Officer, Dr Benedicta Ehanire, said the alleged incident was not recent and should be disregarded.
