The WhatsApp status of Salamat, a 200 level student of the department of Chemistry Education who was killed after a bridge collapsed recently, has been revealed.

It will be recalled that Salamat was killed alongside four others when a pedestrian bridge at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Gubi Campus, collapsed on Monday night August 5th during a heavy downpour, and now her WhatsApp status suggests that she had a premonition about her death.

A screen-grab of the Whatsapp status was shared online by her friends. In the status, Salamat explained that she was not going to heaven with her degree and so will not stress herself overly. Salamat and some of her colleagues were reading in a classroom at about 10pm when they decided to hurry back to the hostel as the weather became windy.

Just before going to use the pedestrian bridge that caused her to drown, Salamat updated her Whatsapp status.

She wrote: “My degree will not go up with me to heaven. Therefore, I will not come and kill myself over school. If I don’t know it by 11.30pm, I am resting my head peacefully on my pillow and going to sleep”

An hour later, she died.
