Graduating OAU Student Murdered A Day To Submission Of Final Essay
A student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Ayoola Ayorinde, has been murdered by unknown assaillants.
Ayoola, a Dramatic Arts student, was going home with his relative when he was stabbed on Wednesday evening by unknown people.
It was gathered that Ayorinde had just got the approval of his supervisor, Dr. Charles Uji, to submit his essay and was on his way home when the incident occurred.
He was immediately rushed to the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital early on Thursday where he died as a result of the stab wound.
It was learnt that the graduating student died a day to the submission of his final coursework as an undergraduate.
The Head of Security, OAU Students’ Union, Seyi Iyiola, said, “I was called to the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital to come and see him. I was told that he was coming back from his supervisor that day around 07.45pm with his brother that came here to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. The brother was at the front when two persons attacked him. After crossing his path, they collected his phone and stabbed him. Those around rushed him to the hospital.
“His family members came that day and we tried to ensure that it was the school management that would relay the message to them. But that could not be achieved. Immediately we got to the hospital, his parents came down but the hospital insisted that they must get police report.
“We then went to Moore Police Station and later to the scene of the incident. I am not aware that he had a clash with any group or persons.’’
