Nigerians React To Death Of Nigerian Scholar Pius Adesanmi

The university, via a statement on Sunday evening, said Adesanmi was one of the 18 Canadians, who died on the Ethiopian Airways flight from Addis Ababa Ethiopia to Nairobi Kenya.

At the Addis Ababa airport, a woman called a mobile number in vain. Eighteen Canadians were killed.

He said finding out otherwise has been very hard on their family.

One Nigerian was confirmed to be among the passengers.

Adesanmi was a Nigerian-born professor in the Department of English Language and Literature and the Institute of African Studies at Carleton University.

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed profound shock at the crash on behalf of the government and the people of Nigeria, extending his condolences to the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, the people of Ethiopia, Kenya, Canada, China and all other nations who lost citizens to the disaster.

A family member told CBC News that Amina Ibrahim Odowaa and her daughter Safiya Abdulkadir, 5, were killed when an Ethiopian Airlines jetliner crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa.
