Last night, October 22nd, Pandemonium broke out in Fagunwa Hall, a female hostel at Lagos University, after students in the hall claimed a fellow student admitted to being a mermaid.
Some of them believed it so much, for” protection” they ran out of their hostel. According to reports shared by some UNILAG students, the alleged mermaid known as Olamide was said to have had a misunderstanding with another student identified as Blessing who was accommodating in her room.
Olamide declared that Blessing had robbed her necklace and threatened to deal with Blessing with the” Marine Spirits” force.
Giving a summary of the incident, a student wrote:
“A girl named Blessing who is being squatted by Olamide in Fagunwa hall had a misunderstanding with her. The misunderstanding was caused by a missing wristwatch. Upon losing her necklace, Olamide suspected Blessing and immediately sent her packing from the room and also wrote long notes stating and threatening her not to ever mess with the Marine spirits frankly stating that she is one of them. This statement and notes written by the “mammy water” sparked speculations that she was an actual water goddess. Her roommates said that she only baths in the morning, upon waking, her bed is always soaked, she wakes up to soak and pour water on her leg, praying to a necklace over her bed every morning.“These statements provoked her roommates who dragged her outside while still emphatically insisting that she’s a mermaid. “These frustrations caused her (mammy water) to reveal that the missing necklace (the one that causes fight) makes her turn into a fish. After these confessions, the Able-bodied Alpha base were then invited into the hostel to lead her out.”
In the meantime, Nigerians took Twitter to respond to the incredible news. See below their reactions.
