It was gathered that the deceased was rushed to OAU health centre via an ambulance, but he was brought in dead; had given up the ghost.

Also, a part 4 student, from department of management and accounting, faculty of administration, whose name is yet to be confirmed, committed suicide earlier today and was rushed to the health centre.
