He said the following morning, after a shared breakfast with her roommate and a conversation with her father, the student expressed her intent to rest briefly before resuming her studies.

The dean said that, however, destiny had a different plan for her, as in the early afternoon of the same day, concerns arose when Olabisi did not respond to attempts to reach her.

He said that upon investigation, it was discovered that she had passed on in her sleep, in her off-campus residence.
