Late Duro Ajeyalemi, a professor of education, was the second death recorded to coronavirus within 5 days.

A former vice-chancellor of the university, Oye Ibidapo-Obe had died over last weekend due to complications linked to the virus.

The university’s deputy vice-chancellor for development services, Folasade Ogunsola, said the management was “again shocked to receive the news of the death of another great scholar.”

Ajeyalemi reportedly died at the isolation centre at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Lagos.

Ogunsola, a professor of medical microbiology, urged Nigerians to desist from partying, saying the violation of COVID-19 rules through social gathering, has increased the cases nationwide.
