OAU, Great Ife

500lv student dies, 2 injured in OAU. Chisom Nwankwo, a final-year student in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Osun State, died in an accident on the university’s campus on Tuesday.

Nwankwo was alleged to be riding a commercial motorcycle along Road 1 on campus when she was killed in the collision.

According to school sources, Nwankwo and the motorcyclist who transported her were hurried to the health center and then transferred to OAU Teaching Hospital, where the student was pronounced dead.

Prior to the tragedy that claimed Nwankwo’s life, a motorcyclist and another university student, Deborah Okunola, had been injured in another accident.

While they were being treated, a biker carrying Nwankwo got carried away and lost control after being hit by a bus approaching behind.

“Around 11 a.m., along Road 1, an accident involving two Okadas and two vehicles occurred,” OAU spokeswoman Abiodun Olanrewaju stated in an interview with PUNCH Online.

“One Okada rider was attempting to overtake a red Toyota Corolla automobile. Unfortunately, the car’s side mirror collided with the motorcycle, and the rider fell along with the passenger.


“The passenger is Deborah Okunola, a Part 2 Psychology student at our school.” As others were attempting to attend to themselves, one Chika Nwakore arrived at the scene, carrying a Part Five female student of the Department of Agric Economics by the name of Chisom Nwankwo.

“The first accident distracted the motorcyclist carrying Nwankwo, and he lost concentration.” A bus approaching from behind collided with the bike. The rider and passenger both fell.

“We were told that Nwankwo and the okada man had been injured and taken to our health center, where they were referred to the OAU Teaching Hospital Complex, but Nwankwo was later declared dead.”

“The body is on campus in the Anatomy Section.” The university administration has notified the police and is taking appropriate action. The Vice-Chancellor is dissatisfied with the situation, and administration has expressed concern about all of the irresponsibility on our roads.

“We sympathize with the deceased’s parents and pray that God Almighty will grant them the strength to bear the terrible loss.” We are devastated by the loss of any of our pupils.”
