Former Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University of Lagos, Professor Jelili Adebisi Omotola, is dead. He died in Lagos after a brief illness. He was aged 65.

Family sources told Daily Sun that the late professor of Law who was removed as UNILAG VC died yesterday morning at his residence (Isolo), Lagos to an undisclosed illness.

The late professor Omotola turned UNILAG around with dynamic programmes which increased the revenue of the university but landed in trouble when he established an outreach programme in South Korea without the approval of senate and government.

UNILAG acting deputy registrar (Information), Mr Segun Ogunsolu, when contacted said he was not aware of Professor Omotola’s death.
He, however, confirmed that the late Professor Omotola was still a staff member of the University but declined to speak about him or his tenure as VC of UNILAG.

He was appointed UNILAG VC in 1994. Professor Omotola has many law publications to his credit.
The late Professor Omotola was born April 20, 1941 at Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State and was married to Mujidat Gamu in 1963 and they were blessed with six children.
