ON THE DEATH OF A 200-LEVEL OAU STUDENT, JOSEPH DANIEL
It’s with great sadness we announce the death of Joseph Daniel, a 200-Level student on Teaching Practice at Acada High School from Faculty of Education who was hit by a truck in front of his house at 99Posh, Ede Road while trying to take a bike to his TP school earlier this morning.
This is an unfortunate incident that left us sober. And we pray that God grants his family, friends and acquaintances the fortitude to bear the loss.
The driver of the truck has been arrested after reporting himself at the police station. Remains of Daniel have been moved to OAUTH before he will be finally laid to rest.
The same spot at Ede Road has claimed lives of three (3) of our students this year. We hereby demand immediate preventive measures from all authorities concerned including creation of bump on that part of that road and immediate completion of that road. This bump should also be extended to Maintenance as we have also witnessed about five (5) other accidents as a result of careless speed while the drivers run away.
We wish all students on TP, IT and SIWES a peaceful and safe period.
