BEING THE STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF BAKARE OLAMIDE
The Students Union had received with rude shock the sad news of the sudden death of one her members, Bakare Olamide, who was a year three student of the department of Economics.
According to reports, Olamide was at Conference Hotel, Abeokuta earlier today, Tuesday 18th of May 2021 where he died.
We have read the irresponsible statement of the hotel management released in the name of one Tunde Osinubi wherein he stated that a gas explosion which could have occurred due to a fake gas cylinder led to the death of our colleague. It was gathered that two person died, with Olamide inclusive.
However, we found the statement not only baseless, irresponsible and unprofessional but also inhumanly from such a management.
Sadly, the information is that as at the time of putting up this statement, the hotel continues to operate without any respect for the lives that were lost.
Fundamentally, we are making our intention known that the management of the hotel shall be held responsible for the death of our colleague as their irresponsibility and unprofessional hands have resulted to the ugly incident.
Our condolences goes to the relatives of Olamide. He was a student with a reputable character. And we shall use all legal instrument available to ensure the management of the hotel is held responsible accordingly.
A luta Continua!

_TASUED Students’ Union President_
