According to a source who was not named, the late lecturer said he was ashamed and tired of begging for money from friends and well-wishers to cater for his family.

His wife had just been delivered of a baby.

The death of the lecturer was confirmed by Fred Omonuwa, the chairman of the College of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU).

Omonuwa appealed to the state government to pay the workers their 13 months unpaid salary.

He said Orobator's death came as a result of his inability to access medical facilities.

Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the federal government's directives for the full reopening of all schools in Nigeria including tertiary institutions and unity colleges.

The body's president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, on Friday, October 2, said institutions cannot reopen because ASUU is still on strike.

Ogunyemi, who noted that the federal government has the right to reopen, however, stated that lecturers will continue to withhold their service.
