The 500-level student, who had just completed his final examination, collapsed and passed away, sending shockwaves through his family.A short video clip surfaced, capturing Oduntan’s jubilation after finishing his last exam before the tragic incident occurred. Shortly after his collapse, the 20-year-old aspiring engineer was rushed to the school hospital, where medical professionals attempted to revive him. However, their efforts proved futile.The unexpected loss of their son has left the family devastated and bewildered. According to Wale Saliu, the deceased student’s uncle, Ayomide seemed perfectly healthy and had no known medical conditions. Saliu expressed disbelief, stating, “He called his mother after sitting for his final examination on Thursday last week to tell her that he had finished and that he was signing out.”The grieving relative further shared their anguish, saying, “Somebody that was still celebrating his sign out as late as 7pm on Thursday, and they said he slumped and died just like that. Some family members went there on Saturday. They said the doctor was not around. They said he died on Thursday. They called us on Friday.”Another family member, Daniel, revealed that it was Ayomide’s elderly father who broke the tragic news to the rest of the family. “What we heard was that he slumped and died on Friday,” he said. “It was the dad that now called all of us about the news from the school.”The late student’s social media posts from Friday night, in which he joyfully announced his completion of exams, only added to the shock and disbelief surrounding his untimely passing. Family members expressed their disappointment that none of the university staff had reached out to offer explanations or support during this difficult time.Ayomide Oduntan was laid to rest on Tuesday, marking the end of a promising young life cut short. Mr Tunde Olofintilo, the Director of Corporate Affairs at Afe Babalola University, confirmed the student’s tragic death. In a statement, Olofintilo disclosed, “Ayomide, a 500-Level Mechanical Engineering Student, slumped around 10 pm on May 31, 2023. He was immediately rushed to the ABUAD Multi-System Hospital.

The results of the autopsy, which was performed by a reputable pathologist, are still pending. The police granted permission for the burial after the post-mortem examination.In a show of sympathy, Olofintilo conveyed the university’s condolences to the bereaved family and expressed hope that such a tragedy would not befall anyone again.
