A former Dean of Education at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof. Duro Ajeyalemi, is dead.
Naija News gathered that Prof Ajeyalami died due to COVID-19 at the isolation centre at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, on Wednesday morning in Lagos.
The late Ajeyalemi was the pioneer registrar of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB). He retired from UNILAG in 2020 after he clocked 70 years old.
Confirming the sad development, UNILAG’s deputy vice-chancellor of development services, Folasade Ogunsola, said the institution’s management was “again shocked to receive the news of the death of another great scholar.”
“It is true Professor Ajeyalemi is dead. We are still in shock. Nigerians should know that COVID-19 is real and they should please use masks appropriately,” Ogunsola said.
This development is coming days after Professors Femi Odekunle and Oye Ibidapo-Obe had earlier died recently of COVID-19. The three Dons are prominent indigenes of Ijesha land in the Osun East Senatorial District.
