UNIOSUN reacts to death of student, says ‘We offered to help but he refused’
The Osun State University (UNIOSUN) Management has reacted to death of one of its students, Busari Ayomide Kamali, whose death occurred on Sunday after sustaining injuries in a motorcycle accident.
According to the school authority, Kamali refused medical assistance offered by the university when the incident happened.
It was revealed that the deceased student wrote a letter of undertaking to that effect.
The university’s Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji, disclosed this while conveying the management’s condolence to the deceased family in a press release.
Adesoji stated that Kamali was a spillover student of the department of Economics Education in the College of Education of the university until the announcement of his untimely death.
He maintained that the incident that led to his death occurred on Thursday, April 19, 2021 as he was going to his rented hostel apartment and that the fatal accident affected him and the rider of the commercial motorcycle.
The institution PRO said “He was rushed to a trado-medical clinic on that same day and the university management was notified of the incident on Tuesday, 4th of May.
“On that same Tuesday, the University management visited the trado-medical clinic and advised that the student should be moved to the university teaching hospital with immediate effect.
“The student declined and said he will contact his family first and will get back to the management on their decision. On Wednesday, 5th of May, 2021, the University health officials visited with an ambulance with the hope that he will be moved to the University teaching hospital that same day but he insisted to be treated there.
“The Students’ Affairs Unit and some student representatives too were advised to persuade him to go to the university teaching hospital as all the expenses will be borne by the University.
“After series of persuasion without any positive result, he was later requested to write and sign an undertaking that he is the one that insisted that he should not be moved to an orthodox hospital to be treated which he did.
“The University health centre and some college representatives had been visiting the hospital to check his recovery but unfortunately on Sunday, 16th of May, he was reported dead and was moved to Ibadan for burial.”
