Adekunle Ajasin University Final Year Student Swept Off By Flood In Ondo State by Mrcomedimatic: 7:30am On Oct 09
The recent heavy rainfall in Ondo State has claimed the life of a final year student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, in Akoko Southwest Local Government Area of the state.

Also, many residents of Ado Ekiti, the state capital, have been thrown into utter misery and confusion as the downpour that lasted about 11 hours wreaked havoc on different parts of the metropolis.

According to reports, the deceased student simply identified as Doyin, who was also an indigene of Ekiti State, was dragged away to an unknown destination by the heavy flood from a canal very close to her residence in Akungba town.

The downpour in Ado-Ekiti, which began around 2:45pm on Monday and lasted until 12:15pm on Tuesday, rendered many homeless and destroyed valuables worth several millions of naira. Some of the affected areas were Ajilosun, Adebayo, Odo Aremu, Ureje, Eminrin, Old Garage, Irona, Atikankan, Olorunsogo, Olorunda and Basiri, among other parts of the metropolis.

The landlord of the missing student in Ondo, Elemukona Ademola, who narrowly escaped the raging flood, said: “I have to climb cocoa tree, when many people thought I had been carried away by the flood.” The landlord said he had made many efforts to curtail the erosion from the canal.

At the scene of the incident, the Ondo State Commissioner for Agriculture, who is also an indigene of the town, Otunba Gboyega Adefarati, paid a sympathy visit to the area. He warned his kinsmen against building houses very close to the canal. Adefarati equally cautioned those in the habit of blocking the drainages with refuse to desist from such act, as this practice always leads to flooding.

Already, the AAUA authorities have suspended lectures and tests earlier scheduled for the week over the incident. A statement signed by the Institution’s Acting Registrar, Opeolu Akinfemiwa, however, said all students should resume today.

According to him, “The University is leaving no stone unturned in the quest to find the missing student. Divers and other volunteers have been sought to search the path of the river in a bid to find the missing under graduate.”

It is no news that about 90% of the houses in Ado Ekiti are old with bad structures. Especially those God forsaken houses around Odo-Ado, Fajuyi, omisanjana and some other terrible places.


The first time I visited Akungba I was shocked to why a sane parent will send her kids to a school with such distasteful environment. I can't even let me dog live around that area (Though there are some new places with standards)

Damn it!
This is so sad.
What a terrible way to die!
After all the years in nursery, primary, secondary and 3 years in the university and just some few months to be a graduate, he was swept off by flood!
We can only imagine the colossal pain of his parents.
Just so sad.
May this never be anyone's portion in Jesus name.
Pidika:
Amen
A BIG Amen.

*PENSION ADMINISTRATORS are EXPLOITING US!!!
*All of us will get old one day.....in few years to come it !will be your turn!*
*_The current pension manipulations should be stopped by Nigerians now!_*
*I was very happy when the Senate recently made a move to adjust the Pensions Act to enable Nigerians withdraw up to seventy five percent of their cumulative savings. The liberty should even extend to allowing pensioners withdraw their whole sum. The law could also give pensioners the liberty to either withdraw their total sum or give the Pension Administrators the kind of investments they want!*
*_After spending sixty years or thirty five years of active service to your nation gathering all types of experiences finance, administration etc. PFA still termed you as novice; you don't know how to handle your hard earned entitlements!_*
*I will make a simple illustration here: _MR. A retires at sixty and has =N=20m as his savings. He accesses 50% of =N=20m which equals =N=10m. The balance =N=10m is to be spread over 180 months (15years) and MR. A earns =N=55,555 monthly for 15years and he stops earning anything because he is expected to die at 75. If MR. A will be allowed to have his total sum of =N=20m, ceteris paribus (all things being equal), he could invest in the Money Market or Government Treasure Bills. Currently and authoritatively =N=20m fetches up to 15% on a 70 days tenor. Meaning =N=20m gives about =N=3m per annum. Divide =N=3m by 365 days and multiply by 30 days gives MR. A, a monthly earning of =N=246,575 without depleting his capital of =N=20m!_*
*Why have we been quiet. Nigerians should wake up from this very deep slumber. The sum given to an average pensioner is not up to the interest the Administrators rake in on his/her capital. This manipulation/exploitation made the PFAs the richest entities even richer than Nigeria its self!*
*_Please share this widely to save yourselves at old age. The National Assembly should save the Nigerian elders now!_*these is a call to save us all from EXPLOITATION AND CORRUPTION
*FORWARDED AS RECEIVED/COPIED*

Look at this attention seeking low life. Where are you even from?

And what has Ado Ekiti got to do with this?
