Deceased Head Of Department Veterinary Medicine


By: Veterinary News Organization


Tributes are pouring in for Dr. Afusat Jagun, a lecturer and Head of the
Department of Veterinary Pathology, who passed on Monday, June 20, 2022.

Dr. Jagun died as a result of complications she suffered in an accident she had in March.


Veterinary News Organization confirmed that she underwent successful surgery after the accident.


However, following complaints of stomach ache on Monday morning, she was rushed to the University of Ibadan Health Centre (JAJA Clinic), where she took her last breath.


Below are tributes from her students:


Elizabeth DVM IV: I got familiar with Dr. Jagun in my 400 level, had issues with understanding some aspects of neuropathology and with her simplified method of “TEACHING”( she was definitely a GREAT TEACHER!), I latched on with the rest of the class without difficulty.
She was a Mother who ensured that her students are on the same page on a particular topic.
Personally, when I look at her, I see and I still see SELFLESSNESS, LOVE, AND COMPASSION ( she’s an epitome of practical Faith( religion) without bias or sentiment). I will miss her greatly, may her loving soul rest in perfect peace. 


Chiderah DVM IV: Dr. Jagun was a sweet soul with a heart of Gold.
She had a unique voice that cuts and burns through with love and correction should anyone go astray
She was both the icing and the cake. 
She was a rare asset, an invaluable piece to the faculty of Veterinary Medicine. She exudes the awesomeness of a thousand people in her. I lack the verbal dexterity to explain how I feel right now. Every student that passed through paraclinical needs to be taught by her. This is a great loss to her family and the faculty, and I pray God comforts us all. May her Gentle Soul rest in Perfect Peace.


Rebekah DVM IV: She was one of the best lecturers.
She embraced my class and made us feel at home.
She came down to our level and impacted our lives academically and morally.
She was a mother.


Bolu 100 level: I saw her last during our lab coat ceremony. She spoke to us and I love her. I was looking forward to having a good relationship with her, but so sad I wouldn’t get to see her anymore. May her soul rest in peace.
