The accident is reported to have occurred at the Oluyole factory of Henkel Nigeria Limited, a soap manufacturing company. According to a staff of the company, his family was not informed about his death because they learned about it from a third party. He met his sudden demise when he was working on the night shift

A source revealed that: “His family members were not informed by the company until an unknown number called them. So they mobilised to the company and blocked the road, about 30 police officers were called in to prevent disturbance.

“An ambulance later came and Richard’s father was allowed into the building. He later went with the body, packed in a plastic bag in the ambulance to the morgue at Teju Hospital without any of the staff of the factory,”

the source added.

President and Public Relations Officer of the faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan released a statement that read as: “It’s completely disheartening to announce the death of Mr Gbadebo Richard (300-level student) from the Department of European Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan.
