The Management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, regrets to announce the death of one of our students, ADESINA, Omowumi Aisat, a 24-year-old, female student of the Department of Foreign Languages.
The student reported to the Health Centre on Tuesday, 28th September 2021 with signs and symptoms of a severe infection. She was promptly treated with some drugs prescribed and asked to report back as an outpatient.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer, Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that Miss Adesina reported back to the Health Centre on the morning of Thursday, 30th September 2021. Upon examination, she was referred to the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital for further management where she regrettably died.
The management sympathises with the parents, friends, colleagues and the entire students of the University on this sad loss, and pray for the repose of her soul.
The management will like to appeal to all students of the University to remain calm and kindly refrain from any act that can jeopardise the peace on campus and truncate the ongoing Rain Semester examinations.
