Edo Gubernatorial Poll: Ize-Iyamu Denies Pouring Acid On Fellow Student During Undergraduate Days –


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, governorship flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming September, 2020, Edo State Gubernatorial Poll, has denied reports that he poured acid on a fellow student during his undergraduate days.

Speaking via virtual-video, the former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate at the 2016 Governorship Election in Edo State, revealed that he and some friends alleged to have committed the offence were suspended by the authorities of the University of Benin for a crime they were innocent of.

According to Ize-Iyamu, he got admission into the University of Benin in 1980 to read political Science, later changing to law, but couldn’t graduate until 1986 due to his rustication, admitting that he was a member of the Pirates Confraternity during his school days, when cults had not become violent, and also a Student Union activist.

Ize-Iyamu explained that he did not commit the offence for which he and some others were rusticated, but that he was actually mediating in a conflict between a member of his group and some other students when the unfortunate incident occurred, adding that he was the one who actually organized first-aid for the victim, and that he was called back to complete his studies after the school authorities had considered the facts of the matter and concluded that he was innocent of the allegation against him, following which he was allowed to graduate and go to Law School.
