Robbers kill OAU lecturer in Edo


Armed robbers have allegedly killed Obafeni Awolowo University, Ile-Ife,
Professor Jerome Elutayo Elusiyan.

Elusiyan, Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) of the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (OAUTH) Ile-Ife, was allegedly attacked and killed by the hoodlums on Saturday along Benin/Ekpoma road in Edo State.

An indigene of Oke-Igbo in Ondo State, said the deceased was attacked at Iruekpen, in Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State.

The professor of Paediatric and Child Health at OAUTH was waylaid alongside his driver, who sustained gunshot injuries.

A Cousin to the deceased, Mr. Tayo Ayoshile confirmed the incident to newsmen in Akure, Ondo Dtate.

He said the don was killed transiting from Benin where he went to supervise as an external examiner for medical students writing their professional examination.

“He was returning home when he was shot dead during the attack while his driver sustained gunshot injuries.

“Uncle Jeromi was a rare gem and an erudite scholar who for over 30 years was a freedom fighter.

“We are very sad by his gruesome killing. Love and soul are immortal, while death is the only horizon and the horizon is nothing to save the limit of our sight.

“His death is a shock to every son and daughter of Oke Igbo in Ondo State and we can only join to sympathize with all the OAU staff, friends and entire family” he said.
