Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe passed on, in the early hours of Saturday May 12, 2012. According to hospital sources, he suffered a heart attack while in his office at the Department of Computer Science, but managed to call his doctor from the medical centre who came to his rescue and brought him to the medical centre in an ambulance and subsequently transferred him to LUTH where he was diagnosed as having Myocardial Infarction
He was resuscitated before being transferred to the High Dependency Unit in Ward E8 of LUTH. Unfortunately, he suffered a second Heart Attack and all efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Post motem examination has since been carried out and this has confirmed the cause of the death to be of Cardiac origin.
The University community has therefore declared three days; Monday May 14th to Wednesday May 16th to mourn the late VC. These days are lecture free days for the three campuses; Yaba, Akoka and Idi Araba. Including ISL and Staff School
