By Deborah Oladejo, OsogboA National Diploma (ND1) student in the Department of Mass Communication, Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, has been confirmed dead after developing sickness in her boyfriend’s house.
Western Post gathered that the lady, simply identified as Wumi, who lives at Gaa Fulani had visited her boyfriend at the weekend where she had complications and became unconscious.
One of the students in the area who pleaded anonymity said the lady was rushed out unconscious and taken to the hospital.
It was gathered that the hospital rejected her and while taking her to another hospital, she died on the road.
The spokesperson of the Polytechnic, Mr. Tope Abiola, who confirmed the death of the student, said the school authority was only briefed that the lady died but the cause of her death was not disclosed.
Abiola confirmed that the police have arrested the boyfriend and the matter is being investigated.
He, however, refuted the claims that the boy is a student of the polytechnic, noting that the school cannot confirm his identity.
He said: “it is true that an ND 1 student of Mass Communication died at the weekend. We did not know the cause of her death. We have not been briefed about the cause of the death. The police are still investigating the cause of the death.
“The school sympathises with the parent of the young girl. It is pathetic that such a young girl could die like that. We pray that such will not happen again in the family.
“It is true that the young boy has been arrested in connection with the death of the young girl. The boy is in police custody for investigation. We urge the police to conduct a diligent investigation on the matter.”
