Osun State Polytechnic mass communication student Iree reportedly died on Saturday after falling ill at her boyfriend’s house in the city’s Igaa neighborhood.
The Nation Diploma, a mass communication student identified as Wumi, is said to have visited her boyfriend where she suddenly fell ill.
Upon returning from her boyfriend’s residence, she began to foam in her mouth and vomit blood and was rushed to a nearby private hospital in Iree, but was rejected upon seeing her condition.
She passed away before she could be transferred to another health facility around 7 p.m. Saturday night.
Confirming his death, polytechnic public relations manager Tope Abiola said the boyfriend was not a polytechnic student.
Abiola said the deceased was a mass communication student of the school’s National Diploma (ND 1).
The spokesperson explained that the cause of death has not been determined, although the polytechnic has not been officially informed of what led to his death.
He said the police were still investigating the case.
While sympathizing with the student’s family, he described the development as pathetic, adding that it was a mystery the young woman could die in this way.
A student, who was close to the deceased and thirsty for anonymity, claimed the boyfriend is a student at the school.
She also revealed that the boyfriend was arrested in connection with Wumi’s death after it was reported to police.
She said police officers were deployed to the area and her body was deposited at the morgue in Ikirun town.
DAILY POST learned that his parents had moved his remains to Lagos for burial.
Osun Police Command spokesman Yemisi Opalola also confirmed the incident and said the police have opened an investigation.
