OAU Closed Down Over Protests Resulting From Death Of Undergraduate

The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State has shut down the institution following the protest that broke out over the death of an undergrad, Adesina Omowumi Aishat.

The school management condemned in strong terms the continuous and uncontrolled protests by the students which has culminated in unbridled brigandage, blocking of the Ife/Ibadan and Ife/Ede highways as alternative routes, and engaging in acts that are detrimental to their health and the safety of the generality of the people.

This is as it also explained that the deceased, Aishat had reported to the Health Centre of the school on Tuesday, 28th September, 2021 with signs and symptoms of a severe infection which was promptly treated with prescribed drugs after which she was asked to report back as an outpatient.

In a press release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olanrewaju and made available to Daily post on Friday, it was revealed that the 24-year-old student reported back to the Health Centre in the morning of Thursday, 30th September and upon examination she was referred to Seventh Day Adventist Hospital for further management where she regrettably died.

Olanrewaju while explaining that the management understood the grief which has resulted from Aishat’s untimely death added that the University had exhausted all necessary avenues to call the students to order and allow for normalcy to return to the campus before it took the decision to close down the school.

“The authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, have accordingly closed down the school until further notice. This is to forestall further breakdown of law and order.

“In view of this, all students are hereby directed to vacate their halls of residence and the campus latest by 12:00 noon on Saturday, 2nd October, 2021.

The university spokesperson stated that the management sympathizes with the parents, friends, colleagues and the entire students of the University on the sad loss and prays for the repose of her soul.

      Death means nothing to people of this country anymore and it is very sad 😒 🚢🏽‍♂️🚢🏽‍♂️🚢🏽‍♂️🚢🏽‍♂️

    2. Na another story we hear that she wasnt treated on time. My question is why are University staff always wicked and nonchalant.
      I can remember when i went to visit my then bf now husband in school abroad when he was doing Masters and i fell seriously Sick. He took me to their Surgery(hospital),presented his own ID and they treated me as his dependant at no cost. All we paid for was the drugs prescribed.

  2. RIP Aishat.

    My brother is so pissed. He just wants final year to start already. I hope they call them back soon.

    1. Your mouth no just get cover

  3. My Alma-Ata and protest. Rip Aishat

  4. Rest in peace Aishat.

    Pretty Patience

  5. So sad indeed,I pray her family be consoled by God. So painful.

  6. Seems like there is some kind of rumours going around why they are protesting. It doesn't appear that the school was at fault.

    May she rest in peace.

    1. The one I heard was that the school's health centre is ill-equiped.

    2. Were you expecting the school to agree that they were at fault?

    3. @ Anon 12:17, Most are. I would not expect any school health centre to treat anything beyond minor incidents. Maybe they should have not treated her for the infection, particularly if it was severe. I hope it was not tss. If full fledged hospitals barely have anything then what would a uni have. It is sad that she died though.

      I hope the hospital give their report and a full autopsy is done.

  7. Chai.. may her soul rest in peace

  8. Rest in peace Aishat.Most school clinics maybe cheap but are not well equipped.I will advise students to seek treatment outside the school in serious cases.God saved me from my school clinic as an underg.

  9. So sad πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”, may her soul rest in peace

  10. God rest her soul.. Its so sad..
