Former Babangida Ally, Prof Omoruyi, Is Dead

Omoruiyi1A former Director-General of Centre for Democratic Studies, Professor Omo Omoruyi is dead. It was learnt that Omoruyi passed away on Sunday night in a hospital in Benin, the Edo State capital, a month after he returned from receiving medical treatment for cancer overseas.

The late professor of political science had been battling cancer for years.

It would be recalled that the late Prof. Omoruyi had in frustration cried out that his friends, including former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), had abandoned him and reportedly said the former dictator should not come to his funeral as he had failed to assist him in his moment of sickness.
