Ex-NANS Secretary, Kolawale Oni, Killed In Car Accident by pitoski(m): 8:14am On Dec 25, 2012
Former National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Secretary General and Executive Director of Ola Oni Centre in Oshogbo, Osun State, Abiodun Kolawole, has died in a road accident.

A source gathered that the renowned former student activist and his wife died instantly while his personal assistant was seriously injured as the 14-seater bus he was driving from Ifako Ekiti State reportedly hit a huge crater and then somersaulted.


Mr. Kolawole until his death was the research officer at the Center for Constitutionalism and Demilitarization, an NGO based in Lagos, Nigeria.

He played a major role in the formation of the United Action for Democracy, a coalition of human rights, labour, and pro-democracy groups committed to social justice, transparency, and good governance in Nigeria.

Kolawole was 45 years old.

HUGE Crater? A huge crater should be visible for quite a distance. I believe the reporter is exagerating with the word "huge". The Oni guy could have been overspeeding. Nigerians are always in a hurry. Sensible driving is very alien to Nigeria. Even in Europe, you do have bad roads, but there are likely to be signposts warning you about the danger and limiting speed. And people do adhere to regulations at most.

BTW, why cant you couter the other fellow without calling him name?

Rest in peace comrade.
