It was reported recently that the a DELSU 300 level student, one Miss. Edeki Lucky, who was in the Department of Language and Linguistics, slumped in her room at Ethiope Hall in Site Two of the university last week.

The Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka was thrown into mourning over the weekend, following the death of the 300-level female student of the institution.

She was rushed to the university’s Health Centre by her roommates, where she was referred to the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Oghara for further medical examination.

Miss. Edeki, who was allegedly diagnosed of partial stroke, died at the Teaching Hospital this weekend.

Some of her roommates who described her as a very jovial and kind person, said she was always complaining of severe headache before the slum incident.

May her soul rest in peace… Amen!

About DELSU

The Delta State University, Abraka – popularly known as DELSU, is a State government university with a main campus located at Abraka, Delta and a campus at Anwai, Asaba. With the 1995 Amended Edict, we now have a campus at Oleh. The University runs a multi-campus system with three campuses within a distance of about 200 km apart. Currently, with a student population of about 36,000 (in the 2007/08 session), the University offers a range of programmes from the full-time certificate, diploma and degree programmes to part-time evening and weekend degree programmes. The University offers post-graduate studies up to a doctoral level. A staff/student counselling centre, an e-learning centre, student accommodation and sporting facilities amidst others are available support services.. It is one of twenty-five federal universities which are overseen and accredited by the National Universities Commission.

Delta State University, Abraka has been historically recorded as a Centre of Education. It started as a Government Teachers’ Training College during the colonial era and some years into the post-colonial era. It became a College of Education that awarded Nigerian Certificate of Education (N.C.E.) from 1971-1985. In 1981, it was affiliated to the University of Benin, Benin City and consequently offered degree programmes from 1981 till 1985 when it became the Faculty of Education of the then Bendel State University with its main campus at Ekpoma. The creation of Edo and Delta States in August 1991 and the conversion of the main campus of the then Bendel State University, Ekpoma to become Edo State University in December 1991, necessitated the establishment of an autonomous Delta State University, Abraka on 30th April, 1992 by the then Executive Governor of the State, Olorogun Felix Ibru.
