A lecturer at the Polytechnic Ibadan, Oyo State, Kola Oladunjoye has died in a motor accident along the Moniya-Iseyin Road.

Oladunjoye, who is the immediate past Head of Department of Architecture in the institution died on Thursday along with three others whose identities have not been made public yet.

A source familiar with the incident said that the other three were on official duty from the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).

Whether or not they are staff of the agency is not immediately clear.

The four were coming from Saki town before the fatal accident that occurred at Odo Ogun bridge on Thursday.

They went to Oke Ogun polytechnic, Saki for an official assignment.

A source said, “They are Tetfund officials who were on official assignment at The Oke-Ogun Polytechnic, Saki. The team also included a staff of The Polytechnic Ibadan.”

A staff of the Polytechnic Ibadan who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “We identified Architect Kola Oladunjoye, our immediate past Head of Department of Architecture. He went to Oke-Ogun Polytechnic, Saki for a programme. He went with his professional team.

“We are yet to identify the others who may probably not be our staff.Sad. So sad but who are we to question God.
