A 100-level student of the Kwara State College of Education, identified as Aminat Tajudeen, slumped and died while receiving a lecture in class.
The incident, our correspondent gathered, occurred around 1:30 pm on Wednesday.
She was said to have collected her matriculation gown for the ceremony scheduled for Thursday (today) and returned to class when the incident happened.
A senior staff of the school, who did not want his name in print because he was not permitted to speak on the incident, said the late Aminat was rushed to the school clinic after she suddenly slumped during a lecture.
She was later taken to the Muslim cemetery, Osere, for her Janazah and burial.
While speaking at her burial, the deceased father was quoted to have said that “she showed no sign or symptom of any sickness. We had quite a lengthy discussion on several issues before I escorted her to get a cab to the school.”
When contacted on Thursday evening, the college Public Relations Officer, Mrs Abibat Zubair who confirmed the incident, told PUNCH Metro that she was a student of Music/Yoruba, adding that she was mourned by the college and students during the matriculation ceremony.
“The Provost visited the parents yesterday to sympathise with them and also mourned her today during the matriculation ceremony together with the students,” the PRO said.
