UNILAG: Convocation Gowns Stolen Ahead Graduation Ceremony




By Seun Adeuyi

A bus conveying the University of Lagos (UNILAG) post-graduate academic gowns have been vandalised.

The gowns were said to be paid for and scheduled for  distribution to the graduating students.

The institution holds its 54th convocation ceremony this week with a total of 340 graduands to be awarded first-class degree certificates.

Confirming the development, an X user shared a screenshot of a message he received from management of the institution after paying N15,000 for the gown.

In the terse message, the user was told that the distribution of the convocation gowns had been suspended as the gowns had been stolen and their bus vandalized.

“Dear graduate, we regret to inform you that the distribution of SPGS academic gowns is now suspended. Sadly, the remaining gowns were stolen, and our bus vandalised this afternoon,” the message read.

The X user captioned the screenshot:

“I paid 15k for convocation gown yesterday and this is what UNILAG just sent me. This country is not a real place.”

The school authorities are yet to react to the issue which is generating  a storm online.
