OOU influential colleague and sympathizers converged at the mini campus to pay their last respect to the deceased, who lost his life in a bike accident some weeks ago.

Mustapha Abolaji, SOSSA President, popularly known as Gr8bjay described the death of Peter as a big loss to OOU. “It is really something we are not happy about. It is quite unfortunate that the guy had been in the struggle for a while and now that he was almost through with his studies, we lost him to the cool hands of death ”, he said. “Peter was a nice and good guy. We were in the same department and level, he was not someone that disturb the peace of the class and he was always contributing to the progress of the society”.

One Blessing Abolarinwa, who introduced herself as a girlfriend to the late Peter expressed her grievances about his sudden death. She said, “The first time I heard the news, I became so weak. Even till now I am still in shock and still don’t believe he's gone”.

Lateef Ayobami, a classmate and a close friend to the deceased opined, “I feel very sad about the incident, I didn’t expect it , I went to work on that fateful day, it was an assignment in Ibadan, so I left Peter at home with my younger brother that came to spend his holiday with me. When I was coming, I could remember that I called them around 6:37pm, and they told me they were at home. In about 45 minutes after, I was told that they had an accident" “I saw him before he died. He died in my present at the Mini Campus Health Centre. He was crying out in pains and begging not to be allowed to die”, he added.

In the same vein, Mustapha Bolaji pleaded with everyone concerned to ensure that justice is executed by persecuting Yaro, the accused “hit and run” driver. The SUG President assures that justice will surely be upheld. He stated, "we have ensured that the accused, Yaro , remains in detention and taken to court. According to the report we gathered from the DPO of Abobi Police Station, he was arraigned to court yesterday and he promised that Yaro will face the full wrath of the magistrate. "We’ve informed all quarters that needed to be informed. The commissioner of police, Eleweran and vice chancellor has been informed and they are aware of our stand. We are going to remain on our stand that justice must be served and we will ensure that the family of the deceased is aware that we are solidly behind them”, he concluded.
