Controversial Death Of First Class Graduate, Ifedolapo Oladepo

Like many thousands of young graduates mobilised for the 2016 Batch 'C' service year, 26-year-old Ifedolapo, a first class Transport Management graduate of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomosho had said her goodbye to her family members, hoping to see her dreams fulfilled but that dreams were shattered.

Exactly a week in the Camp, it was her corpse that was brought to her family after she was said to have died following complications arising from an ailment few days into the NYSC orientation programme in Kano. The remains of Ifedolapo was sent to her parents in Osogbo, Osun State, from Kano where she was buried at her family's residence.

Authorities of the scheme attributed her death to an untreated renal sepsis infection, according to investigations carried out by a panel of Inquiry set up to look into the cause of her death. The investigation showed that the deceased responded well until about 2:00 am on 29th November when her condition worsened, and her body began to show noticeable signs of fluid retention. She was thereafter placed on oxygen as the doctors battled to stabilise her for the long journey to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.

Following the controversy generated by Ifedolapo's death which many pointed out that she died because of NYSC negligence, the Federal Government said that for an independent investigation be carried out, the body of miss Ifedolapo may be exhumed for an autopsy. But Ifedolapo's father insisted that there was no need to exhume the remains of his daughter because the result of the autopsy would only reveal what caused the death and not the negligence of the medical personnel at the NYSC camp clinic.
