The group also accused the government of the state for trying to distort the details about the misfortune.
meantime, civil society organisations in Edo State have issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to set up a section of investigation to enquire the death of Prof. Iyayi, or face obnoxious reactions from Nigerians.
The organisations, made up of lawful practitioners, scholars, work unions and lecturers, made their position renowned, weekend, at a symposium and street protest organised by the Africa Network for Environment and Economic Justice, ANEEJ, and nationwide Human privileges Commission and Citizens riches Platform to assess 2013 International Day to End Impunity.
boss controller of ANEEJ, Rev. David Ugolor, said that a humanity not propelled by justice was unacceptable, therefore the need for the Federal Government to set up a panel of investigation into the murdering of the previous ASUU leader.
Uniben ASUU, on its part, said that at the befitting time, ASUU and the Iyayi family would demand concrete responses from the Kogi State Government for Iyayi’s killing.
Reacting to the accident that asserted Prof Iyayi’s life, the ASUU branch head person, Dr. Anthony Monye-Emina and receptionist, Okeri Henry, said: ”Prof. Iyayi did not just pass away in an misfortune, but was willfully murdered by the state and its agencies.
“Nigerians are aware of the recklessness of political agency holders and their aides and in specific, of Alhaji Idris Wada on our streets and the arrogance that proceeds with it. It is time that Nigerians increase up to constrain the menace and put a stop to the lawlessness, recklessness and impunity of our leaders.”
asserting that ASUU and the Iyayi family were adept of giving him the befitting burial that he warrants, the group said that it did not desire any state interference in his burial, alert that “his burial should not be an avenue for government officials to tally cheap political points as we will resist any state engagement in the burial.”
