A 400 level student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Oluwatobi Ogunmola who was declared missing few days ago has been found dead.
A campus source told our correspondent that his body was found hanging in a bush at Gambari, Ogbomoso, in Surulere Local Government Area of the state.
Ogunmola, a student of the school’s physics department, is also said to be a mobile phone technician and solar system consultant
One of his Facebook friends, Adeleke Ayoade, while condoling with her family, wrote, “In times like this we feel with the family of Ogunmola Taiwo on the death of their son who was found dead. The death came as a shock to everyone especially the people of Gambari in Ogbomoso. Very calm and reserved brother. We pray God comfort the family and rest the soul of the deceased.”
LAUTECH Public Relations Officer, Lekan Fabiyi, said he could not say anything until the victim’s studentship was confirmed.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, said: “The case was not reported at any of our departments, either as a missing person or the discovery of a body.”
However, the President of LAUTECH Students Union Government, Anuoluwapo Adeboye, described the death as shocking.
“At this time we are heartbroken and full of grief at this terrible news. We mourn and sympathize with the family of the deceased and ask the good Lord to give them strength to bear the loss.
“We are also appealing to all security men in the state, especially in Ogbomoso, to strengthen security in LAUTECH and its host community, Ogbomoso,” Adeboye added.
