The police in Osun State are currently investigating the death of Ajibola Heritage Ayomikun, an undergraduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University who died recently.
Ayomikun had slipped into an open soakaway pit, leading to her death.
Abiodun Olarewaju, the spokesperson for the university, revealed the institution’s management had queried the owner of the private hostel ‘BVER’, where the incident took place.
Olarenwaju said the management was expecting response to its query from the hostel owner.
“It must be noted that all the hostels in the students’ village are privately owned and they are not under the control of the University. The University Management presently has only oversight functions on these private hostels,” he said.
He also confirmed that the matter is before the Criminal Investigation Department, CID of the Nigeria Police Force, Osun State Command.
