#ASUUStrike Update: Iyayi’s death causes ASUU to postpone NEC meeting

share on:

As expected, the death of one time ASUU president Prof. Festus Iyayi has paused the decision making process. Iyayi who before his death was the Head of the department of Business Administration, University of Benin and also one of negotiating team of ASUU. It was reported that they were on the way to Bayero University Kano, where the decision was to be taken when his vehicle and one of the vehicles in the convoy of Kogi state Governor, Captain Idris Wada (Rtd) collided.

Iyayi who was in company of Benin Zonal coordinator of the union, Dr. Sunny Iyalo; the National welfare officer, Dr. Ngozi Ilo and University of Benin chairman of ASUU, Dr. Anthony Monye-Emina was the only one that died as Ilo was badly injured and presently receiving treatment in Lokoja General Hospital. The remaining two only escaped with minor wounds.

Eye witnesses said this ill-fated accident happened at Banda, a village close to Lokoja and neither the government nor any of the vehicles in his convoy stopped to check what had happened. Although the Special Adviser to Kogi State governor on Media and Strategy, Mr. Jacob Edi denied the accusation claiming that he did not only stop at the scene but also ordered the medical personnel in the ambulance in the convoy to attend to the victims.

  2. Asuu is selfish. All d students dat has died due to d strike, were they mourned. They want to kill students future cos of d death of one person bcos dier wards re graduate or abroad. Karma will meet all of them and they shall knw no peace forever cos of d blood n future of students

  3. Asuu asuu asuu! Its God who gave u people the power to do what u wish! Cus of a soul u play with the future of million youth? Its 100% unfair! U are the enemies of we students not the government! So stupid

  4. If he I min iyayi was to b ur father or ur close frnd wat will u b sayin or doin right nw….pls think bfo u tlk …..it is well

  5. D cry n blood of our lost student shall hot more life 2 u assu people as it ve started, bcos the cry of the young children assu is suffering ve reach God Almighty,b4 u assu claim is FG n nw FG have been trying their best n is just one death,n u people extended d meeting,so one death is important over many student hu hv lost deir life due to greediness assu ve,and one death is important ova millions of student that hv bin @ home 4 5 months,assu president ur really heartless.

  6. Asuu are bounch of idots GOD WILL CONTINUE to punish u ppl as u ppl has done to us for the past four month how can you ppl use becausee of death of some one still keep our hope us at home did you ppl no how many student that has lost their life coos of u ppl

  7. I don’t know the reason why public office holder(Governors) are claiming lives of people because of their own selfish interest and reckless driving. I’ve learnt over years that leader lead my example, but reverse is the case when it comes to Nigeria leaders.Most of the accident that happens nowadays on the highways are caused by governors convoy and their reckless driving and they called themself Leader. With or without convoy God can kill anybody even if u have a million convoy and security. I think our leaders should be oriented about the uses of convoy and security before they claim another person’s soul.

  8. For God sake how can one man’s death jeopardise our destinies? How is dis death different from other deaths? afterall somany students hv lost der lifes during dis period of strike and nobody cares but jst bcos of one lecturer who ws fighting for his pocket they hav now shifted d nec meeting.
