Three Student Union Leaders Die in Ghastly Car Crash

The Presidents of  the Student Unions of the Federal University of Technology, Akure Dapo Awopegba; Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo Abiodun Akintola and Ondo State School of Midwifery lost their lives in a lone car accident along the Owo-Akure Road.

The spokesman for the Ondo state police command, Aremu Adeniran said the auto accident occurred at Emure Ile junction on the expressway on Friday night around 8p.m, according to.

Mr. Adeniran added the accident occurred as a result of over-speeding.

Reports say the Union leaders were on their way back to their various institutions from Abuja, where they had gone to witness the presentation of an award to the Ondo state governor, Olusegun Mimiko, and some other eminent Nigerians by the National Association of Nigerian Students.

They were travelling in a bus donated to the Joint Campus Committee by the state government recently.

Others who sustained injuries are receiving treatment at the Federal Medical centre, Owo.

  3. I hope Mr. Governor will now save us a minute before thinking of other awards he will arrange for himself.
    Why are the students protesting in Akure? It wasn’t that the deceased were invited to graze the jamboree award occasion but they were part of the tools used to secured frivolous award, Adeyemi College of Education(ACE) students aren’t in school on the account of unrest in the school due to the protest staged by the students of the institution some months ago to express their anger on the spate of sudden death of their colleagues in Ondo. The school, ACE was closed down since then. The info at my disposal had it that the Provost threatened not to reopen the school until after Oct.20 guber election in the state,but our desperate governor who has no meaningful impact in the school wanted the school to be reopened with the promise that he will off-set the reparation fees on behalf of the students. This gesture was turned down by ACE Provost having notice what Mr. Governor is up to. If not for greediness, Mr. ACE President should have smell desperation in the governor disposition too and as such be at his father house.
    This same governor that couldn’t pay tertiary students bursary & scholarship for 2010 academic session suddenly turned to students friend just because we’re closed to election time. The same Dr. Mimiko that embarrassed President of OAU chapter of NAOSS here in Ile-Ife sometime last year all because the guy asked Mr. Governor when he’ll be paying students stipend of bursary & scholarship. He came back to OAU campus 3weeks ago and was able to doled out 250K to the current President of the same association after taken the guy and some few students in his bus to some point in his journey back to Akure. If a governor is fooling other people like Agbero and touts, why should students be falling victim with all these robust and well package destinies from the Creator?
    May the good LORD consoles the parents of the deceased.

  4. For how long wl d future leaders lives be wasted? For how long wl student unionism wl rue over their leadership and abdicate in d expected goals? For how long wl people of racism use their own impression of materialism 2 forfeit the egaliterianaism 2 be share in unity in student unionism without aiming of our own well-being? Great lost 2 student masses in Nigeria, lost 2 student unionism in FUTA, ACE&MIDWIFERY ONDO. May all these souls of future leaders died on ineffable day rest in peace. ALUTA CONTINUA, VICTORIA ACETA

  5. I really pity the parents of the deceased,I don’t see why they shld follow the governor anywhr, I can’t judge them cos they are dead now……May their souls rest in peace….

  6. Alas!!! What a Painful Lost of Great and Alutarized Nigerian Students… NANS Pls Let Us Declare a Day Mourning For The demised of our Colleagues In the Struggle… Aluta Continua, Victoria Acerta.

  7. We cnt blame them cos they didnt knw dat death is waiting 4 them. Nobody who is living happily, will ever wnt 2 die bt it had happened. May their souls rest in the bossom of the lord amen. Adieu brothers! Adieu our heroes!! Adieu kings!!!
