The Management of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board has commiserated with the families of a dead staff member, Madinat Abosede Otun.
Otun, until her demise, was a Senior Teaching staff of the Board, attached to Community Primary School 1, Olopomewa, Ibadan.
She was enroute Abuja from Ibadan for a workshop organised by the United Nations Children’s Fund with her colleague, M. Adedeji of Bako Community Primary School, Ido, when they were involved in a ghastly motor accident.
The Executive Chairman of the Board, Dr. Nureni Adeniran, revealed that while Adedeji survived the accident, but sustained injuries, Otun died.
“The incident is very unfortunate”, Adeniran said, adding: “She would be sorely missed in the teaching service of Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, especially for her disciplined lifestyle and dedication to duty.”
He prayed that the Almighty God grants the soul of the departed eternal rest and comfort her family.
The chairman revealed that the State Government has made arrangements to bring Otun’s body back to Ibadan and ensure Adedeji undergoes proper treatment.
