New Naira: LASU staff dies while queuing in bank to withdraw N5,000
Mr. Ademola Adesola, a staff at Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo, slumped and died while waiting in line to withdraw N5,000 new note from a bank on campus.
The Grade Level 13 officer drove himself to the school in the morning, according to Mr. Jeariogbe Olaniyi, Head of the University’s Publicity and Public Relations Unit, who confirmed the incident to the Nigerian Tribune on Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
Mr. Olaniyi claims that the deceased left the office about 11.30 am to go to the bank to withdraw money from his account. He slumped and passed away while waiting.
He said the deceased spent only about 30 minutes in the queue when he suddenly collapsed and could not be revived.
Olaniyi said he was rushed to the university clinic for attention but all efforts to revive him proved abortive.
He said while Mr Adesola’s death is painful, the university would want to put on record that it had more than one deputy bursar and that the deceased was not one of them.
He said Mr Adesola joined the service of the university as a typist in 1986 and rose to the Chief Executive Officer (Account) on Grade Level 13.
