A 100-level student of the Kwara State College of Education, Aminat Tajudeen, has reportedly slumped and died in class.

According to a report, the incident occurred around 1:30 pm on Wednesday.

She was said to have collected her matriculation gown for the ceremony scheduled for Thursday and returned to class when the incident happened.

A senior staff of the school, who did not want his name in print because he was not permitted to speak on the incident, said the late Aminat was rushed to the school clinic after she suddenly slumped during a lecture.

She was later taken to the Muslim cemetery, Osere, for her Janazah and burial.

While speaking at her burial, the deceased father was quoted to have said that “she showed no sign or symptom of any sickness. We had quite a lengthy discussion on several issues before I escorted her to get a cab to the school.”

Confirming the incident, the college Public Relations Officer, Abibat Zubair, stated that she was a student of Music/Yoruba. She added that she was mourned by the college and students during the matriculation ceremony.

“The Provost visited the parents yesterday to sympathise with them and also mourned her today during the matriculation ceremony together with the students,” the PRO said.
