A senior lecturer of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife in Osun State slumped and died on Sunday morning.
According to reports, the OAU lecturer, Dr. Victoria Oluwaremilekun Adeniyi, had shown no sign of sickness until she slumped around 11.00 am in her residence.
The Nation reported that one of the children of the deceased informed a colleague, who in turn brought the news to the notice of the university authorities.
In a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the OAU, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, the deceased, an Acting Head of Department of Dramatic Arts of the university, directed this year’s OAU convocation play which was staged last Saturday.
