Mr. Adesola

According to Mr. Olaniyi, around 11.30 am, the deceased left the office for the bank to collect money from his account. While waiting, he slumped and died in the process.

He said the deceased spent only about 30 minutes in the queue when he suddenly collapsed and could not be revived.

Olaniyi said he was rushed to the university clinic for attention, but all efforts to revive him proved abortive.

He said that while Mr. Adesola’s death is painful, the university would want to put on record that it had more than one deputy bursar and that the deceased was not one of them.

He said Mr. Adesola joined the service of the university as a typist in 1986 and rose to the position of Chief Executive Officer (Account) on Grade Level 13.
