300-level female student found dead in her off-campus apartment – Kano varsity

The management of the Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, ADUSTECH, Wudil, Kano State, has said that a female student, Yahaya Aisha Olabisi, was found dead in her off-campus apartment and not the university’s students’ hostel as reported on social media.

Olabisi, a 300-level student of Food and Science Technology, was found dead after she returned to her room from school.

The deceased student was said to have written her first examination in the ongoing first-semester examination at the university on the fateful day.

One of the male students who spoke to punch on condition of anonymity on Saturday, May 4, 2024, blamed her sudden passing away on examination pressure.

“The deceased was hale and hearty when she went out to write her first examination in the ongoing first semester examination,” the student said.

The university’s Dean of Students’ Affairs, Prof. Abdulkadir Dambazau, a statement in Kano on Friday, May 3, urged the public to disregard the reported death of Yahaya Aisha Olabisi in the hall of residence.

“It has come to our attention of a recent statement made by some media outlets regarding the discovery of a student’s corpse at the students’ hall of residence. This is entirely false,” the statement read.

“We wish to address this matter promptly and unequivocally refute these claims. On April 23, 2024, we received news about the untimely passing of Yahaya Aishat Olabisi, a diligent and bright student of ADUSTECH, Wudil,”

Mr Dambazau explained that Olabisi spent her last evening engrossed in her studies, diligently preparing for upcoming examinations.

He said the following morning, after a shared breakfast with her roommate and a conversation with her father, the student expressed her intent to rest briefly before resuming her studies.

The dean said that, however, destiny had a different plan for her, as in the early afternoon of the same day, concerns arose when Olabisi did not respond to attempts to reach her.

He said that upon investigation, it was discovered that she had passed on in her sleep, in her off-campus residence.

According to him, immediate measures were taken, as she was swiftly taken to the university clinic, where her passing was confirmed by medical professionals.

“Given the circumstances, her remains were transferred to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), for postmortem analysis to ascertain the cause of her sudden demise,” he said.

Mr Dambazau said that after honouring her memory and bidding her farewell, Olabisis was laid to rest on April 24.

“We urge everyone to refrain from spreading or engaging with misinformation that may harm our university’s reputation and create unnecessary panic,” he said.
