His body has been released to his family and has since been buried.
Here is a statement from the school registrar, Mr Bamidele Olotun:
“The students’ spontaneous reaction was sparked by misinformation that the deceased was knocked down by a mini bus called agolo in local parlance and that the assailant driver ran away.
“This misinformation has since been refuted by the Police who confirmed that the driver reported himself at the Police station and that he and the Toyota Corolla car were in their custody.
“This clarification has calmed the nerves of the rampaging students and the situation has since been brought under control.
“The corpse has been released to the parents and has since been buried.
“The university expresses deep condolences to the family of the deceased, the students body and the entire university community on the unfortunate loss of the promising young man.
“The university would like to appeal to all students to go about their normal academic activities as peace has now returned to the campus.”
Late Adesuyan’s corpse was moved to his parents house in Akure on Monday evening for burial. Before the ambulance got there, people were already outside crying in the heavy rain.
The dean of students affairs, the students president, vp, the senate president, deputy senate president and some, his departmental president and some sug members were all present at the burial.
