Dr. Oluremi Osunlola, a former lecturer at Kwara State University, has reportedly committed suicide.
The deceased according to Punch, was a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture of the institution.
According to report, the late Osunlola, had 3 months earlier lost his wife and was recently notified by KWASU management that his full time appointment has been changed to a contract appointment.
Osunlola according to sources started exhibiting strange behaviour after he was notified by the university. An old colleague reportedly even pledged to offer him another job at Landmark University, Omu-Aran but refused to give the colleague his resume for the new job.
A friend allegedly took him to an unnamed cleric who counselled him and it was also said that the same friend escorted him to his family at their residence in Ibadan, Oyo State capital where he eventually took his own life.
The Director, Public Relations, KWASU, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan confirmed Osunlola’s death.
The Management of KWASU, Malete, would like to clarify that the late Dr. Oluremi Solomon Osunlola, was a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture. He joined the services of the institution on a full-time appointment in 2010.
However, during staff verification, it was discovered that the late Osunlola had already retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Kwara Office, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.
Despite the fact that the deceased violated the rule of his engagement, the university, in August, 2017, converted his appointment to contract, on compassionate grounds. This is all we can say about the late Osunlola.
