The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has lost one of its prominent members, Festus Iyayi.

Iyayi was killed when a car in the convoy of the Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada, rammed into his vehicle near Lokoja in Kogi State.

He was on his way to the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of ASUU, where the members were to discuss the latest offer by President Jonathan to end the lingering strike by the union, after branches of the union have discussed the offer at their various institutions. 

ASUU President Dr. Nasir Fagge confirmed his death, saying the sad news was broken to the union a few hours ago.

The professor died on a failed portion of a  Nigerian highway around Lokoja in Kogi state according to ASUU, SaharaReporters reports. 

A police source as well as an eyewitness told SaharaReporters that Mr. Iyayi died instantly at the scene of the ghastly accident.
