Ex-ASUU president’s death: Iyayi’s kinsmen demand N50 billion compensation from Kogi

The death of the former President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Festus Iyayi, has continued to cause outcry in the country and his kinsmen are not left out.
According to reports, members of Professor Iyayi’s home community speaking through their traditional ruler, Samuel Obade I, the Onojie of Ugbegunland, are demanding that a compensation of N50 billion be paid to the family of the late professor by the Kogi State governor, Captain Idris Wada.
The former ASUU president died earlier this week in a crash caused by reckless driving on the part of some members of the governor’s convoy.
Vanguard reports:
The community in a letter dated November 13, to the Executive Secretary, National Human Rights Commission, Abuja, on the death of its son in an automobile accident with the governor’s security details, called for a thorough investigation for Nigerians to know the actual cause of Iyayi’s death.
This came as eminent Nigerians, including the supervising Minister of Education, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, continued to lament the untimely and tragic death of Professor Festus Iyayi.
