Have you heard that one of the three Nigerians who got their PhD from Akin Euba at the University of Pittsburgh, Oyebade Dosunmu (PhD 2010), died mysteriously on Tuesday, Nov. 24?

His colleagues at the Department of Music, University of Ibadan went to check on him at his residence when he didn't show up for work. They knocked on his apartment door several times with no response. They then decided to break in; and there they found his body lying lifeless on his bed. He lived alone, so there was nobody to explain what happened.

Unfortunately, he returned to Nigeria some few months ago and recently started teaching in the new Department of Music at the University of Ibadan. He did not last 6 months.

May his soul rest in peace!
