The Kwara State University (KWASU) has confirmed the death of one Dr. Solomon Osunlola, a lecturer at the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture who allegedly committed suicide

The institution's Public Relations Department through its director, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan confirmed this as it stated that the Deceased who joined the institution in 2010 until his death was a lecturer 1 in the College of Agriculture.

According to the PR department, Osunlola had joined on a full-time appointment but was however converte to a contract-based appointment. This conversion according to close colleagues led to depressed behaviour.

 “However, during staff verification, it was discovered that Osunlola retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.

“But, in spite of this discovery, the university, in August, 2017, converted Osunlola’s appointment to a contract engagement on compassionate grounds.

“One of his friends even offered to assist him to secure a job at Landmark University, but the deceased did not submit his credentials, when he was asked.

“Another friend also took him to a cleric for prayers and counseling after noticing that he was depressed”

According to close relatives, Osulola's loss of his full -time satus led to  decline in his mental stability.
