The students and the accidented vehicle
To conclude that the death of three final year and a 300- level students of the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA, Ondo State in an auto crash was sad and painful is an understatement, Vanguard reports.
No word is too big to describe the agony of the parents and family members of the students who had gone far in their education. The parents have however taken solace in the Christianity admonition:“ In all things we should give thanks”.
It was crying and wailing penultimate Saturday when the news of the death of the students filtered into campus. The tension in the university was so high that everyone wore a long face. The atmosphere was sombre and a visitor to the institution would easily decipher that something tragic had happened.
Students gathered in groups to pray and cry in the open field and lecture theatres while lecturers and other university workers discussed the ugly incident in hush voices. Traffic inside the university was thin.

For three days,the university community mourned the four students whose lives were cut short in the auto crash. That Saturday was indeed a black day in FUTA as lecturers and students cried and wailed openly.
The 500-level students who died in the crash include Olaleye Israel Olumide-mathematics and statistics, Owadayo Funke-microbiology, Abolarinwa Olaniyi-electrical and electronics engineering while Oke Oluwatosin was a 300-level student of electrical and electronics engineering.
