The Deputy Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Francis Igbasan, while confirming the incident lamented that he felt very sad and devastated about the story.
” I feel very bad. I felt bad that I have lost a colleague. A very vibrant professor of about 50 -years-old, who has contributed a lot to the University “
” And that is what we have been saying that government is not doing enough to protect lives and properties.”
“The University is not happy, the community is not happy and personally I am not happy “
Igbasan said it took years to produce a professor, most especially a professor of Mathematics of his type and so losing him in such a circumstances is pathetic.
He called on government at all levels to rise up to the trend of modern crime and criminality which is ravaging the country.
