Three lecturers of Ahmadu Bello University, ABU, Zaria, Kaduna State, yesterday died in an auto crash while three others were seriously injured. The incident occurred along Kaduna - Abuja Expressway.

A Nation report identified two of the victims as Prof. Samuel Kafewo and Dr. Martin Adegba both of whom were returning to Zaria after featuring on an AIT programme.

It quoted Director of Information of the University, Dr. Ismaila Shehu, as saying: “We are still in shock. We don’t have the details yet, but I can tell you that we lost Kafewo and Dr. Martin. Prof. Jenkins is seriously injured and is in hospital.”

The lecturers, according to the report, had been working with the McArthur Foundation to build a Centre of Excellence for Development Communication in the university which was recently commissioned by the wife of the Vice President, Hajia Amina Namadi Sambo.

Reacting to the development, the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the institution, Prof. Kabir Aliyu, said the deceased were committed academics and colleagues who worked hard to improve the standard of learning in the university.

“We are shocked by this unfortunate development. They are committed academics and had gone for a programme aimed at improving their department. All of them, including the injured are from the same department,” Prof. Aliyu said.

“Two of our PG students were also involved. One of them died and the other is critically injured. We pray for the repose of the soul of those that died and quick recovery for those injured.”
