So, the University of Ibadan came with a coffin during the last NUGA game. The Coffin had the inscriptions “Rest In Peace Unilag,” and “Unilag Gone Too Soon.” There was also a cross on the coffin.

The University of Ibadan did this to brag that they were capable of defeating the University of Lagos athletes. That is, Unilag athletes will lose to them, and their game will be over so soon and be buried. 

However, the reverse happened. The coffin the University of Ibadan had carved for another school, the University of Lagos, ended up becoming theirs as Unilag defeated them.

They got the shocker of their lives as they did not even get to the top 15. Omashe!
