OAU lecturer discovered DEAD in his office

The lifeless body of a lecturer, Dr Nicholas Igbokwe, was on Saturday morning found in his office at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

Until his death, Igbokwe was a lecturer in the Physical and Health Education Department of the university.

Although no official statement yet as to how the incident happened, a source in the department, who pleaded anonymity, said the late academic may have died late Friday without anyone knowing about it.


The source said, “His lifeless body was already cold when it was discovered around 12.00 a.m. Saturday.

“That suggests he died on Friday without anyone knowing about it. I passed by his office around 7.30 p.m. on Friday and his car was not parked at the usual spot. So, no one knew he was around.

“Some members of staff later observed light was on in his office and entered there. He was already cold by then.”

The late Igbokwe, it was learnt also, was rushed to the university’s health centre, where he was confirmed dead.
