Anxiety; OOU Loses 5 Students In Three Months To Death

Within the spate of three months five Students - four finalists inclusive - have been reported dead at the Olabisi Onabanjo University.

It's an undisputable fact that death is inevitable and it is no respecter of any person. Aside from OOU being one of the leading State Universities in Nigeria, high mortality rate has been one of the few stains on our white apparel as death seems to be practicing an inter departmental competition in the Ogun State's foremost citadel of learning.

In December 2017

The death case which happened to be the curtain raiser, a 100 level Micro Biologist  which reports disclosed that Oluwatobiloba Omolebi died after a brief illness. She is believed to have paid her tuition fees and completed her verification exercise before the ugly incident occurred.

In February 2018

A 300L biochemistry Student at the Shagamu Campus also died. AbdulAzeez Moyosore was reported to have given up the ghost after brief illness. His death came few weeks after writing his final semester examination.

That same month also witnessed the tragic death of Oyekanmi Peter, a 400L Political Science Student who died after a ghastly motorcycle accident at Itamerin, Ago-Iwoye.
Peter and Moyosoore was honoured with a candle night which was attended by the SUG President, Williams Adeosun and many other Students.

In March 2018

The university also lost a Student of Sociology, Yusuf Alabi Bello popularly known as Alfa.

The 400 Level Student is reported to have died of an unknown disease. Colleagues said that he was sick before the completion of his examination. However, after the examination he went to Lagos for further treatment where several tests conducted proved negative. He died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital  on 19th February. 

In April 2018

The early days of the month and resumption of rain semester was greeted with the pathetic news of the death of two Students of the University.

As everyone celebrated the Easter with happiness and thanksgiving, such was not the case for some OOUites and the entire family of Oladipupo Ayooluwa and Asuni Oluwakemi Saidat.

Oladipupo, a 400 level Chemical Science Student was announced to have died after he had drown in the pool of a hotel while hanging out with friends on Easter day.
We thought that would mark the end of death cases  until the fresh news of Asuni Oluwakemi Saidat was brought to limelight. 

The 400L Business administration Student popularly known as Jinx Breaker was reported to have died after a slight headache on April 3rd 2018.

Commenting on the menace, the Speaker of the OOU Students' House of Senate, Dist. Senator Olayinka Bello described the incessant deaths as an incident that saddens the heart of OOUites.

"It really depressed my mind especially those very close associates. It pains me  when I heard, in fact I almost cried. But what should I do? We love them but God loves them the more and I pray we don't witness such grievous occurrences again.", Olayinka said.
