A former Head of Department of Dramatic Arts of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Professor Foluke Ogunleye on Sunday died in a ghastly motor accident.

The professor of Dramatic Arts was said to be the elder sister to Mr. Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media to President Muhammadu Buhari.

It was gathered that the accident occurred on Sunday while the lecturer was coming from Ibadan to Lagos.

Confirming her death to The Guardian on the telephone yesterday, the Public Relations Officer {PRO} of the university, Mr. Abiodun Olanrewaju said she was a lecturer in the Dramatic Arts Department and she hailed from Ipetumodu in Osun state.

Late Ogunleye headed the Department of Dramatic Arts of OAU from 2006 till 2009.

Ogunleye, a popular author of two plays, Nest In a Cage and Jabulile delivered her inaugural lecture early last year, about three decades after the Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka delivered his in the department.
