Patience died on Thursday about the time another student of the same institution, Olakunle Olayinka, was murdered in cold blood by suspected cultists.

The former was said to have breathed her last at the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, where she was rushed to from the institution health centre, according to a statement the school Registrar, Mr Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, released, which reads in part: “On admission of Miss Temitope Patience Ayedun, a 200-Level of the Department of Educational Management, at the university health centre, the medical personnel tried their best to manage her until she was referred to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo where she was intensively managed before she died on Thursday, March 5, 2020.”
