Africa was a kegite and his father was a spiritualist. He went for a kegite gyration and retired to his room to sleep. He was shot in his sleep. His offence? He was pointed out as the man behind crippling of cult activities on campus. He was accused of going after opposing cult to his.rumors had it that he could have faced The killers as he is known to be a heavily jazzed guy (why they called him africa), the then sug president escaped through an opening in the ceiling. A stray bullet hit a medical student. I was in OAU then on a visit to my girlfriend, I was an akokite. It all seems like yesterday

grin bro, Akokite means he was a student of unilag. I hope say people no go make jest of you for not knowing tho. Crazy people we have here

I was in ife then, it wasn't a nice thing to behold. Finished secondary school few years back, seeking admission to OAU. I could remember how one of the cultists was arrested in a street not far from our place, he was strip unclad and beaten to stupor.

How I wish Sowore would taste power and see what he can do, the guy has something to offer but lack platform. He should start from his state.

akokite was what we called unilag students.
Africa was untouchable and dealt massively with the bad guys on campus. He had a lot of protection.

But alas, the bad guys fell him, so they reserve the bragging right that they can fall anybody.

Vanity upon vanity, all is vanity!

That's exactly the story our senior colleague told us. Back then on campus, every July 10, pictures of the massacre are usually displayed and when you see the dismembered bodies of these students, you will almost cry.

It was said that when the father saw his dead son, he said he was sure they didn't meet him well coz he knew what his son was capable of doing.

I saw this in 2009 when I went for post ume. Ife was celebrating 10years of Afrika's struggle. Ife was literally shot down that day. The pictures of their dismembered bodies lingers in my memory.

Yes, anti oppression in any form, either from school management or cultists.

But cultism in OAU was at its peak in the 90s so how could he have gone Scott free oppressing them without back up. When I was in Ekpoma , our anti-cultist where former cultist that feigns innocence but they were deadly too. So am shocked how he did it.
