Professor Samuel Aje, the Vice-Chancellor of Achievers University, Owo is dead
The Vice-Chancellor had travelled to Lagos for Christmas break last week Friday but suddenly died in the early hours of Thursday.
The cause of Aje’s death is yet known. He assumed the position of the institution’s Vice-Chancellor in June 2020.
Confirming the death, the Head of Media and Protocols of the university, Mr Adebayo Olagunju, said the institution awaits the cause of the VC’s death.
He described the sudden death of Prof. Aje as “sad and unfortunate” and said the whole university community was shocked when the news reached them.
“The family would soon issue further details on the incident,” Olagunju stated.
A senior lecturer in the school who does not want his name mentioned also said he was shock and devastated over the death of the Vice Chancellor.
“We were very shocked when we heard the news of his death. There was no sign of sickness on him before the Christmas break and we are yet to know the real cause of his death,” he said.
