The death of Ifedolapo Oladepo, a First Class graduate of Transport Management from the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, who died after camp officials in Kano assumed she was pretending to be sick to avoid parade has brought tears to the eyes of many.
But perhaps the most affected persons are her parents. Her mom took to Facebook to recount Ifedolapo’s last moments in a very heartbreaking tribute. She wrote:
