But the aforementioned church, owners of the college, in a statement signed by the Chief Shepherd of the Archdiocese, Most. Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, said that all students of the school were reported safe.

However, it confirmed the death of the school’s Administrator, Rev. Sr. (Dr.) Henrietta Alokha, and a female security guard.
