A Covenant University student has alleged that the school is testing the females for pregnancy and not COVID-19.
The lady with the Twitter handle @booghy_ took to the microblogging site to accuse Covenant University of ignoring COVID-19 test and focusing only on pregnancy and drug tests.
She pleaded with the social media community to help, saying she is so scared.
COVENANT UNIVERSITY IS NOT DOING COVID-19 TEST FOR STUDENTS! THEY LIED TO OUR PARENTS. THEY ARE ONLY DOING PREGNANCY AND DRUG TEST! I RESUMED TODAY AND ALL THEY DID WAS TAKE MY URINE AND BLOOD SAMPLE.
PLEASE HELP!Folded hands I AM SCARED TO MY WITS! RETWEET WHEN YOU SEE THIS
They brought out only 2 canopies to search and test us. We were so many! Rain fell and they left us under the rain. Our provisions were destroyed and our luggages soaked to the last.
The Ogun government had mandated all higher institutions in the state to test their students for COVID-19 before being allowed in the school premises but @booghy_ says the school has failed to carry out the coronavirus test on students despite the directive.
The student accused the school management of lying to their parents by assuring them of their safety amidst the pandemic.
One of the staffs even said that if any of us is infected, that we should not worry that papa is praying. That we should forget COVID-19.
When asked for evidence, she said she couldnt provide one because it was raining.
I would have appreciated at least an evidence or corroboration of your story because it’s getting more difficult to take side on TL lately without evidence or hearing the other party.
Several times people have alleged violations and they turned out not to be true.
I couldn’t make a video because rain was falling and i was standing directly under and i couldn’t be using my tab under the rain. It’s not a water proof tab.
Come to school and see for yourself or ask every other CU student who resumed today
When accused of lying, she added “@_MsAlade I suspect that if you actually resumed yesterday, you won’t come out to say i lied! And if you actually did not resume yesterday to experience this yourself, please just refrain from typing.”

“Some universities in Nigeria are glorified secondary schools. So if you are pregnant na house you go go straight.”

“Did your parents tell you it was perfect when they went to school? I guess they probably carried concrete. Or sold firewood. You children of these days just ask for too much. Did you try to find out how many ways to do COVID19 test. Now, you will be in trouble for this for sure.”
