CMAC of OAUTHC, Professor J.B.E ELUSIYAN shot dead!
The entire Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching hospital community, Nigeria Medical community and well meaning Nigerians have been thrown into mourning following the shocking death of Professor J.B.E ELUSIYAN at the hands of unknown assailants in Edo state.
He was said to have been attacked at Iruekpen, a local government area in the Central District of Edo state where he was attacked by some unidentified armed men and shot dead on the spot. Professor J.B.E ELUSIYAN was on his way back from Ekpoma where he went to invigilate medical students of the Ambrose Alli University when this unfortunate incident happened.
The professor has been described by his students as a patriot, kind, honest, hardworking and loving man who do not deserve the such a painful demise. He was just made a professor last year and was a Professor in Pediatrics Endocrinology.
Here are some of the comments from his students, colleagues and people that knew him personally.
It’s a sad night as the OAU community loses a great man, the CMAC of OAUTHC, Professor J.B.E ELUSIYAN.
May his gentle soul rest in peace, and may God grant his loved ones, family, friends and colleagues, the fortitude to bear this loss. Amen.
This is the kind of thing we should protest about. This man was just trying to impact positively. A family has lost a husband, father and friend. This is just so disheartening.
The country failed us again. We’ve lost one of the good ones to the cold embrace of death. A teacher among teachers, a great man. I have been in shock since I heard. He was my examiner in Paediatrics. I still saw him 2 days ago in the Hospital. Very very sad. We’ve lost a bright one, he was one of the good ones we had around. Very very sad.
Aaaaahhhhhh Uncle, still gave me a reference letter to CMD of UCH last month Death yyyyyy.
Ohhh what a loss! He helped when my dad was ill…I don’t just feel like typing. May his soul rest in peace!
I feel so sad and really terrible to hear about the death of my teacher, Professor Elusiyan. He was murdered at the prime of his career. How many paediatric endocrinologists do we have in this country to start with? They killed one of the very few….
The weight of sadness in my heart is so huge. The man encouraged me and spoke to me as a son before and after house job.
Professor Elusiyan, the CMAC of OAUTHC was shot today in Edo State and he is dead.. And just recently I saw videos of some youths claiming they will unleash terror in that state, and the state government didn’t do anything about it. RIP to a great man. A well spoken man. Smh.
Very humble a man, he is dedicated to God and his work. He uses his own money to buy drugs, pay bills for patient so as to save life. He has some students he is paying their school fees, what will happen to these ones now.
I remember him making jokes to lighten up the mood at an award ceremony I happened to be…. Saying they were all too serious. We lost a great one.

May his soul rest in peace… He is well spoken of! This is a shock to the whole oauthc community…
As at the time of filing this report, no official response from the police and Edo state government. The assailants are still at large.
The Nigerian Medical Association finally reacts after 48 hours of Prof’s brutal murder.. .
Read their memo:
“We’re pained and sad that our highly revered colleague was so gruesomely murdered. It could have been any of us so in one voice, WE DEMAND AN END TO THIS CHAIN OF MENACE!”
