The Lagos State University #LASU has cleared the air on the news surrounding of one of the staff, Johnson Ademola, who died on his way to the bank.

The Acting Coordinator for the Centre for Information and Public Relations, LASU, Mr Olaniyi Jeariogbe, confirmed the incident of his death.

He, however, clarified that the deceased was not one of the institution’s Deputy Bursars as reported by some media outlets.

In his words, “LASU does not have only one Deputy Bursar. And as I speak, all our Deputy Bursars and the Bursar are alive, hale and hearty. I needed to clarify that.”

“The man who died was the CEO, Accounts and was, until his death, the Financial Officer of the Faculty of Law."

“Anything can happen to anybody,” he said, adding that, “he (Ademola) left the office to go for some personal transactions at the bank between 11 am and 12 pm, and he had not even been away for up to 30 minutes when we heard that he had died.”

Ademola, who, until his death, was the Financial Officer of the Faculty of Law and an Executive Officer in the Accounts Department of the institution, was said to have slumped while waiting in the queue for his turn to withdraw cash; efforts to revive him reportedly proved abortive.

It was gathered that the deceased was subsequently rushed to the University's Health Centre where he was certified dead.

Ademola, according to the Jeariogbe joined the institution as a Typist in January 1986 and was born on November 13, 1959.
