” The news of the death of Mr. Olakunle Matthew Olayinka, a 300-level student of the Department of Biochemistry, following wounds from gunshot by unidentified gunmen, was received last night, Friday, March 6, 2020, after the medical personnel at the university health centre put up spirited efforts to stabilise him.
