There was mourning today, at Zenith Bank branches in Ibadan, capital of Oyo State, as news of the death of the bank’s Deputy Manager, Consumer Banking, Mr. Bolaji Alege, in Iwo Road, was broken to the staff.

He died last Friday, at the age of 31. Mr. Alege died around 6:30pm at Egbeda, along the Ibadan-Ife Expressway, following an auto crash.

At the Zenith Banks visited this morning, staff were seen mourning as they reluctantly attended to customers while majority of them were discussing the incident in groups.

It was gathered that the management team of the bank from Lagos are already in town to sympathise with the wife, and arrange to take the corpse to his home town in Kogi State.

According to an eyewitness, Mr. Alege was returning in an official Honda I-VTEC car with two other staff identified as Chinwe and Omolara, from Owo Township in Ondo State, where they went to meet one of the bank’s major customers, when the tragic incident happened.

The eyewitness said, “He was coming from Owo town. Getting to Egbeda area of Ibadan, a trailer that overtook another vehicle faced him and in an attempt to avoid a collision with the trailer, he swerved the car to the side of the road not knowing that there was a big pothole which was covered with water. Running into it, the car summersaulted and he lost control. The impact of the accident threw him out of the car and he died on the spot.”

Our sources revealed that he was immediately rushed to a private hospital, Toun Hospital, and was later transferred to the University College Hospital (UCH), where he was confirmed dead on arrival.

It was further learnt that fifteen minutes before the accident, the deceased put a call to his wife telling her to proceed to the Redemption Camp along Ibadan-Lagos Expressway, for the Holy Ghost Service and that he would join them later after leaving the office. Again, three minutes before the accident occurred, somebody flashed him and he called the person back.

Alege, who hails from Kogi State, was described by his colleagues as the best marketing operations manager in the South-West, ‘bold, trainer of the trainers and an asset to the bank’. His body has been deposited at the UCH mortuary. He is survived by a wife, parents, siblings and two kids.

Meanwhile, the two ladies with him at the time of the incident were seriously injured and currently receiving treatment at the UCH.
