Mr Ademola Adesola, a staff of the Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo, slumped and died while queuing in a bank within the school to withdraw N5,000 new notes.

Mr Jeariogbe Olaniyi, Head of the Publicity and Public Relations Unit of the university, who confirmed the incident to the Nigerian Tribune on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, said the Grade Level 13 officer drove himself to the school in the morning.

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 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 Chief Executive Officer (Account) on Grade Level 13.
