"Obafemi Awolowo University massacre: Remembering my friend, inimitable George Iwilade, the Secretary-General of the SUG of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

On July 10th, 1999, Comrade Iwilade popularly known as “Afrika” was brutally murdered by cult gangs sponsored by the university authorities. Afrika and I engaged in a series of struggle before I left Nigeria in February 1999.

This photo was taken when we staged a rally at Yaba, Lagos condemning the persecution of OAU students. Afrika, Lanre Adeleke “Legacy” and my humble self unfurled a giant banner within a massive police cordon.

May the force be with you always, friend!"

#RIPAfrika.

That brutal night.

Kegites were having a world gyration on campus, so the many new faces on campus were not alarming.

The killed Afrika in his sleep. While screaming Awo Machine come out, we need blood.

I remember one other guy they killed saying as his life slowly ebbed away " God, we did not plan it like this"

Eiyaa

Rip.

These days I say rest in peace with trepidation. For none is sure of whether or not there exists peace there.
It's all mystery. Hawkings opines that no life exists after here. For him, just like a major computer component makes it dead, so we too die.

Rip again.
