» OGITECH debunks rumour surrounding the unfortunate loss of a student

The attention of the Management of Ogun State Institute of Technology, Igbesa has been drawn to an untrue report published online by the Nation Newspaper of today Wednesday 4th of November, 2020.

OGITECH debunks rumour surrounding the unfortunate loss of a student

The report, to say the least, attempts to twist the facts surrounding the unfortunate loss of one of our students, Yussuf Maleek – Matric Number NCEF/19/0019, an ND1 Student of the Computer Engineering Department. The report is not only false, putting the Institute in bad light but one mischievously aimed at misleading the general public.

To state the facts of the sad incident as it happened on Tuesday 3rd November, 2020, the Management was promptly informed that a commercial motorcycle popularly called Okada had hit Yussuf Maleek while crossing the road in front of the school. He was rushed by those close by to a nearby clinic (not the Institute’s Clinic).

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the motorcyclist in question was riding on a one-way lane. He has since been arrested by the Police and transferred to the Area Command, Agbara.

The Institute’s Matron on getting the information, got the immediate go-ahead of the Institute’s Management to transfer him from the external Clinic to the State Hospital, Ota.

Not only did the Institute facilitate the immediate transfer, he was accompanied by four members of Staff including a medical staff from the Institute’s Clinic and two of his friends.

Unfortunately, Yussuf Maleek gave up the ghost despite further attempts to save his life at the State Hospital, Ota.

The Management takes the safety and security of every student seriously and this event is a sad and regrettable one. No one should lose a child let alone this way.

We commiserate with the family of Yussuf Maleek, who we have maintained contact with since when this loss occurred yesterday.

We also request that the Nation Newspaper show some sensitivity for the family of the late student and the Institute who are grieving the loss at the moment.

We expect nothing but absolute professionalism in the way and manner the Nation Newspaper, or any media outfit for that matter file their reports. Confirming to establish the facts of a matter before publishing a report should be sacrosanct to the media.

Thank you.




Ogun State Institute of Technology, Igbesa
