Male Graduate screams from sleep, dies after project defence

1>>Students and staff members of the Osun State Polytechnic,
Iree, have been thrown into grief following the sudden death
of a fresh graduate of the institution, Felix Agandi, who died
barely four days after he defended his undergraduate
project.
One of Agandi’s coursemates told our correspondent on the
telephone on Friday that he was dropped at his residence by
one of his friends at around 10pm on Monday night.
The coursemate stated that the 27-year-old graduate of Mass
Communication was an orphan, who struggled to finance his
education from his national diploma days to the time he
finished his higher national diploma programme.
The deceased’s neighbours were said to have rushed him to
a hospital after he was heard suddenly screaming from his
sleep but he was reportedly certified dead right inside the
car before he arrived hospital on Tuesday morning.
He said, “We are all in a pensive mood in Iree now because
of Felix’s death, who screamed from his sleep and died
shortly after that.
“ Felix was a gentle person but jovial. He was humble and
hardworking. Despite being an orphan he saw himself
through school. His death is an unfortunate one and this
week has been one of the saddest ones in recent times in
Iree.”
The remains of the Delta State-born student were said to
have been buried at Ilesa, Osun State, where he lived with
his siblings on the same day.
A lecturer at the Department of Mass Communication, Mr.
Tope Abiola, who is also the Public Relations Officer of the
institution, confirmed the death of Agandi.
He told our correspondent that the management of the
school had visited the deceased’s siblings to commiserate
with them.
Abiola said, “The death of the student is still a big shock to
everyone of us. We were told that he died in his sleep. He
died just some days after he defended his project. There
were few corrections made on his project and he was
supposed to submit the corrected version when he died.
“He was a cool and hardworking young man. I learnt that he
was an orphan but he was focused and determined but
unfortunately death snatched him away. May his soul rest in
peace.”
