OOU Press Club has confirmed the death of the Adefuwa Christopher, the President of National Association of Science Students (NASS), OOU Ago- Iwoye Chapter. This follows after about 61 students from the faculty of science were involved in an accident while returning from an excursion trip in Ondo state.
It was learnt that only 21 Students were injured in the incident that happened on Saturday morning when a 27 seat passenger bus carrying the university students collided with an onrushing trailer at Ife Junction along Ondo-Akure road.
An Eye witness who spoke to OOU Press Club said that Christopher underwent a medical surgery yesterday after xray results showed he had internal injuries. He furthered that the surgery was successful and He was able to speak to people around him. However, trouble started when He had complications around midnight which prompted his transfer from the State Specialist Hospital, Ondo State to Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital where He gave up the ghost around 8am this morning.
Our witness who expressed shock and sadness over the incident said Christopher was the least He expected to have died. In his words, “His injuries were not physical so we didn’t belive anything could happen to him. In fact, He still spoke this morning and everyone thought He is fine already. The situation is just saddening”
Meanwhile, OOU Press Club reliably gathered that no other death has been recorded. An ambulance and team of concerned stake holders are reported to have left the OOU Mini Campus to Ondo state this morning to convey the deceased and other students back to Ago – Iwoye.
