It was gathered that after Osatuyi sat the final examination, he joined his colleagues on the campus to celebrate the feat.

After a while, Osatuyi, who was the class governor of the graduating Civil Engineering students and some of his colleagues proceeded to a sports viewing lounge where they continued the celebration.

A fight reportedly broke out and Osatuyi, who was allegedly injured in the process, was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The Ondo State indigene, however, died on Wednesday, July 28, 2021, after efforts by medical doctors to save him proved abortive.

According to PUNCH, Osatuyi’s colleague, who craved anonymity said, “I am an HND 2 student of Civil Engineering and last Tuesday was our final paper; some of my colleagues had an elective course on that day and after the exam, we took pictures at the engineering building and everyone signed on each other’s white round-neck T-shirts.

“We also went to the multipurpose hall to take pictures and from there, some students went for other engagements. But before all the students left, Osatuyi was asking us to come to the lounge to celebrate together before we go home.

“I was not prepared to go out that day, but what took me to the lounge was because I went to collect something from my friend, who went there with Osatuyi and the other students to celebrate. When I got there, I spent around 30 minutes and left for my hostel to sleep around 7.30pm.

“On Wednesday morning, I heard that there was a fight at the lounge and someone was rushed to hospital. I asked who the person was and I was informed that it was Osatuyi; I was shocked.

“But when I was informed that he was responding to treatment, I gave thanks to God. Unfortunately, that same day, he passed away. I don’t know what caused the fight.”

Another colleague said, “I tried to find out what really happened during the fight, but all the people I asked said they left the lounge before the fight. Before his corpse was taken down to his hometown in Ondo State, I went to LASUTH to pay my last respect to him.

“His parents insisted that they didn’t want an autopsy and demanded that his corpse be conveyed down to their hometown for burial.”

The spokesman for Yabatech, Joe Ejiofor, who confirmed the incident said , “He (Osatuyi) just concluded his HND 2 exams; they were the last batch, who sat their exam last week. It is a tragic story and my heartfelt condolences to the family. For somebody, who had just concluded his exams and should begin to reap the fruit of his labour to just die like that is quite tragic and unfortunate.

“I have seen the dean, and the student, who met with the dean has not given us the true picture of what happened. What he said was that they wanted to do a candle light procession and we told them that they could not do it.

“The college cannot begin to carry out any investigation because nobody from the family has come to inform it of the incident. What we are just hearing is that some students went out after their last paper to have a get together and in the process, the incident occurred.

“It did not happen in the college. I cannot begin to tell you what and what the college will do until we get a full gist of what happened.”
