UNILAG Final Year Student Slumps And Dies While Playing Football With Friends (Photo)

Yet another University of Lagos student has passed on, throwing the school into mourning.

According to All Reality Gists, Odusami Ajibola Mathew, a 500 level student of the Department of Estate Management, slumped and died while playing a game of football with friends.
A statement released by the Secretary of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences Students Association (FESSA) reads:

“We regret to announce the sudden demise of our colleague, brother, course mate, *Odusami Ajibola Matthew*, 500L student of the department of *Estate Management, Faculty of Environmental Sciences.
Though he was at the Faculty as well as sport centre yesterday, his death is a big shock to us and we will always remember him.
We pray his gentle soul rests in perfect peace. We love you.
FESSA Secretariat.”
This news was also confirmed by students of the school who have since been mourning their colleague.
On social media, the latest tragedy has caused an outrage as concerned Nigerians noted the increase in deaths in the southwestern university.
Recall that in June, two female post-graduate students of the University of Lagos drowned at the Elegushi Beach in Lagos. According to reports, Adesola Ogunmefun and Funmi Odusina were swept into the ocean by strong currents. Their tragic deaths raised eyebrows on Twitter, leading to the arrest of two managers of the beach as they were accused of not having alert system that could have prevented the deaths. Following the investigations by the Lagos State Police Command, the Elegushi Royal Family temporarily shut the beach down.
Also notable was the alleged suicide case of a Unilag student in March who died after swallowing insecticide (sniper). It’s still unclear why Eniola Jacobs, the 300l student of Microbiology, took the dangerous portion. However when discovered, Jacobs was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) where he was declared dead hours later.
And so, with the recent passing of Ajibola, Nigerians have trooped to social media to join the school in mourning, while expressing worry at the rise of the death cases.


  1. Stress or what killed him

  2. Same thing happened here in Sokoto this last Thursday at my friend's PPA. He only slumped and died just 15 minutes into the 5 A-side match.

    This is just a lesson to those who hot tempered, who'll quickly resort to fisticuffs over just menial arguments:

    Some people are just about to die, they only need someone to trigger their deaths.

    Be careful, control your emotions.

  3. Handsome boy wasted,pls youths like try and do medical check ups it not only 4 pa and ma,some will say na juju but it mayb a health dat has been facing up but he overlooked it or did not attend to it. Every death no be devil wrk

    1. Well said! R.i.p Ajibola!
