Vice Chancellor of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Professor Osayuki Godwin Oshodin Obaseki, is critically ill and has been flown to a London hospital for treatment.

A report this morning in The Guardian said the illness has to do with alleged deliberate food poising believed to be a attempt by some aggrieved persons to assassinate the VC.

“Obaseki had a few months ago alleged plot to assassinate him by some staff of the university who were sacked by the Governing Council of the institution over improper conduct early this year. It was later alleged that he was poisoned through food,” reports The Guardian.

The paper quotes sources close to Obaseki’s family as saying that he was flown abroad last weekend after all efforts to clear the poison from his system failed.

It also reports that a Benin socio-cultural organisation, Benin National Congress (BNC), has vowed to fish out the perpetrators, just as it appealed to security agencies to arrest and prosecute those involved or the group may resort to self help.
