RIP! Two Osun State Varsity Graduates Die On There Way To NYSC Camp

No fewer than two graduates of the Osun State University (UNIOSUN) have died, while two others sustained injuries in an accident on the Lokoja-Abuja road.

It was gathered that the graduates were posted on Wednesday by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to Kaduna State, to undergo the 21-day orientation course, when the crash occurred.

It was learnt that the prospective corps members hired a Toyota Sienna space bus from Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, to Kaduna.

Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the University, Ademola Adesoji, who declined to release the details of those involved, said four former students of the institution were involved in the road mishap.

He, however,, added that two of them survived while two lives were lost to the accident.

Adesoji said while three of the prospective corps members, including the two that died, were heading for Kaduna, the last one was heading to Kano state.

He further explained that immediately the accident occurred on Wednesday, the survivor contacted the institution.

“And we immediately informed the management of National Youth Service Corps Scheme.

“Four of our ex students were involved. Three of them are male and one female. Two died in the accident. But we spoke with the two that survived and monitored their movement up to hospital.

“Our Students Affairs Unit also notified the NYSC leadership and the management of the scheme responded immediately. The two that died were heading to Kaduna NYSC Orientation Camp. The four of them travelled in a vehicle they hired from Osogbo.

“The University condole with the families of the deceased. We mourn them,” Adesoji said.
