Confirming Professor Ajeyalemi’s death on phone, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG (Academic and Research), Prof Oluwole Familoni, said “It is a truth that Professor Ajeyalemi has died early this morning,” Wednesday.

The late don, however, was said to have gone to the hospital on his own for medical attention when feeling unwell but could not survive it.
 
Professor Ajeyalemi, from Ibokun in Obokun Local Government area of Osun State, was a pioneer Registrar of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) and also a former Dean of Faculty of Education of UNILAG.
