Aminat Tajudeen, a 100-level student of the Kwara State College of Education slumped and died while receiving a lecture in class.

It was gathered that the incident happened on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, a day before the matriculation ceremony for freshmen students at the school.

The deceased was said to have collected her matriculation gown earlier in the day for the ceremony scheduled for Thursday and returned to class with excitement when the incident happened.

A senior staff of the school who spoke anonymously on the issue said the late Aminat was rushed to the school clinic after she suddenly slumped during a lecture.

The source added that before getting to the school clinic, Aminat had already passed on.

Her body was later taken to the Muslim cemetery, Osere, for her Janazah and burial.

While speaking at her burial, the bereaved father said his daughter showed no sign of illness, and he had escorted her to get a cab to school that morning.

“She showed no sign or symptom of any sickness. We had quite a lengthy discussion on several issues before I escorted her to get a cab to the school.” He said.

The college Public Relations Officer, Mrs Abibat Zubair, who confirmed the incident, said the deceased was a student of Music/Yoruba, adding that she was mourned by the college and students during the matriculation ceremony.
