The don, simply identified as Mr A.O Subair, set himself on fire yesterday in his senior staff quarters located at Phillipson Road of the University.
He has been buried at Akinyele public cemetery according to Islamic rites.
Silverbird TV reports that the late mathematician had recently resigned from the university without a justifiable reason but was yet to pack out of the staff quarters before the incident.
It was also reported that the late university lecturer had separated from his family and had challenges progressing on his career.

Omole urged members of the Union to confide in one another saying “isolation could deepen depression which may culminate in suicidal ideation.”
