Barely two week after the death of Unilag’s Vice Chancellor Prof Shofoluwe, (if you missed it, read it HERE) a lecturer in the Creative Arts Department, Chief E. A. Bassey, died on Saturday evening while watching the finals of the 2012 European Championship between Chelsea and Bayern Munich, The Punch reports.
It is believed that he died from a heart problem in his home in Lagos
while watching the football finals which Chelsea won 4-3 on penalties
but full details are yet to be confirmed through a medical expert.
According to an anonymous source that spoke to The Punch:
“He started watching the match in his departmental office but later,
he left the office for his quarters on campus where he continued
watching the tension-soaked match. During the match, he complained of
heat from within and asked that the fan be directed at him.
“Those who were watching the match with him did, but later, he said
he wanted to go to the toilet and it was in the process of going to the
toilet that he slumped and later died,” the source said.
A student of the institution, Mr. Tosin Adesile, expressed shock at the death of the lecturer, wondering why another lecturer should die a week after the demise of Sofoluwe.
Also, a student in the Faculty of Arts, Funto Haastrup, while paying
tribute to Bassey, said the multi-talented lecturer would be sorely
missed by the university.
