Former Kwara state university lecturer commits suicide

A former lecturer at the Department of Crop Production,
College of Agriculture, Kwara State University, Malete, Dr.
Solomon Osunlola, committed suicide yesterday Friday,
November 17th.
According to reports, the registrar of KWASU had written to
inform him of his conversion to a contract staff from a full-
time appointment. This reportedly got the deceased so
depressed that some of his friends had to seek spiritual help
because it became a serious case. The deceased had lost
his wife three months ago. One of his friends had offered to
assist him with a job at Landmark University but Osunlola
declined and refused to submit his credentials.
Yesterday, his family members had to force his room door
open after he did not step out in the morning. Sadly, they
discovered that he had committed suicide.
Confirming his death, the director, Public Relations, KWASU,
Dr. IsiakaAliagan, said
“The Management of KWASU, Malete, would like to clarify
that the late Dr. Oluremi Solomon Osunlola, was a Lecturer
1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of
Agriculture.  He joined the services of the Institution on a
full-time appointment in 2010. However, during staff
verification, it was discovered that the late Osunlola had
already retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture,
Kwara Office, before taking up a full-time appointment with
KWASU. Despite the fact that the deceased violated the rule
of his engagement, the university, in August, 2017,
converted his appointment to contract on compassionate
grounds. This is all we can say about the late Osunlola.”
His remains have been deposited at the morgue.
