An unidentified lecturer of the Federal University of Agriculture on Friday allegedly crushed two male students of the university with his car at Isolu, about two kilometers to the institution’s permanent site in Alabata, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The incident sparked an uprising as students of the institution took to the streets in anger at the killing of their colleagues by the unidentified lecturer. He was said to be driving a Pathfinder jeep that crushed the two undergraduates.

The suspect, said to be a lecturer at the institution’s Department of Water Resources Management, reportedly fled the scene immediately the accident occurred to escape being lynched by the irate students.

Eyewitness reports say the driver of the jeep lost control of the vehicle before ramming into the students, who were walking by the side of the road, killing them on the spot.

Other FUNAAB students allegedly set the SUV ablaze but that was after the driver had escaped and barricaded the roads leading to the university campus.

The students also defied pleas by the policemen deployed in the area not to take the laws into their hands.

FUNAAB Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kola Adepoju who confimed the killing of the two students, said the university had declared Monday, March 18, 2013 as a lecture-free day to mourn the dead students.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the victims had been deposited at a mortuary.

Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.

He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.

“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.

“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.

“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
