An employee of the Lagos State University, Ojo, Mr. Johnson Ademola, died Monday afternoon in a bank queue in the institution while trying to withdraw cash.
NewsmakersNG gathered that the incident happened at a branch of WEMA Bank in the university, where customers were being allowed to withdraw a maximum of N5,000.
Eye witnesses said that Ademola, who until his death was the Financial Officer of the Faculty of Law and an Executive Officer in the Accounts Department of the institution, slumped without showing any prior signs of distress, while all efforts to revive him proved abortive.
Punch Newspapers report that the deceased was subsequently rushed to the University Health Centre where he was certified dead.
The acting Coordinator for the Centre for Information and Public Relations, LASU, Mr. Olaniyi Jeariogbe, confirmed the incident to journalists. He, however, clarified that the deceased was not one of the institution’s deputy bursars as reported by some media outlets.
