The British Deputy High Commisioner to Nigeria, Mr Ben LIewellyn-Jones, on Friday visited Dominican University (DU) as part of the effort to foster partnership between the British government and the Nigerian government.
Liewellyn-Jones paid a visit to the citadel of learning to see the Dominican Chapel which is said to have been in existence for 50 years.


The Dominican Chapel which was designed by Architect Demas Nwoko to have one source of light that would come from the sky, first bathes the central crucifix before illuminating the rest of the chapel.
Upon his arrival, Liewellyn-Jones proceeded to the office of the Acting Vice Chancellor Professor Hyginus Ekwuazi, who welcomed him and his envoy.
