Ayodele Isaac Ojediran, a senior lecturer at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, reportedly slumped and died on Tuesday in his office.
Ojediran was rushed to the university’s clinic immediately after collapsing, but unfortunately, he did not make it.
Confirming the incident, a close colleague of the deceased, Ayodeji Obisesan, in a post on his Facebook page, wrote: “Such a very humble and nice man to the core. Always willing to help. God will give us, your colleagues, associates, students, friends, and family members, the fortitude to bear this great loss. May your soul rest in perfect peace, Dr. Ojediran Isaac Ayodele.”
Abiodun Olarewaju, the Public Relations Officer of the school, described the incident as a very sad one, hence the decision of the school not to issue an official statement.
