He disclosed this while addressing journalists over Iyayi’s death. Iyayi died in a road accident on Okene -Lokoja Road when the convoy of Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada rammed into his car.

He was on his way to Kano for a National Executive Council meeting of ASUU when the accident occurred.

Falana, who noted that the death of the late don is a “personal loss,” said the leadership of ASUU and the family of the deceased have given him the mandated to pursue the matter in court.

According to him, the case will serve as a deterrent to other road users who are in the habit of harassing other road users through reckless driving and use of sirens.

He also stated that other political office holders should take a cue from Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Faashola who moves about without a siren despite his busy schedules and the chaotic situation of traffic in the city of Lagos.
