A lecturer in the Department of Quantity Surveying at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, simply identified as Dr. Mrs. Akintola, has passed died following complications resulting from childbirth.
The Punch reports that Mrs. Akintola fell ill after giving birth to a set of twins and died on Monday.
The Public Relations Officer of the university, Abiodun Olanrewaju, confirmed Akintola’s death in a telephone conversation.
He, however, did not give details of the incident.
He told The Punch, “Unfortunately, the story is true. The details are not palatable. She gave birth to a set of twins. And there were complications thereafter.
“She was treated only to give up the ghost yesterday (Monday) morning.”
