Odusami Matthew, a 500-level undergraduate of the University of Lagos, has died after slumping at the Biobaku Hostel.
Matthew, a student at the Estate Management Department, was playing football with some of his friends on Friday when he slumped.
He was reportedly rushed to the school’s medical centre where he was confirmed dead on arrival.
The remains of the student had been deposited at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba.
One of the residents confirmed that the incident happened around 4pm.
“He stayed in this hostel. Around 4pm, he decided to play football with some of his friends. He was not tackled neither was he with the ball when he collapsed.
“Nobody understood what went wrong with him. He was rushed to the medical centre, but he died on the way. It’s really a shock to us.”
