While the students of Moshood Abiola University protested the name change, Abiola's daughter Olawunmi Abiola expressed bitterness over the development.
Olawunmi posted on twitter: "Naming a university after my dad doesn't make up for wat u all did to him...BASTARDS".
Late MKO Abiola's daughter was obviously showing anger over the way her father died. In 1994, MKO Abiola was arrested after he declared himself the lawful president of Nigeria. This order came from military President General Sani Abacha, who sent 200 police vehicles to bring him into custody.
Moshood Abiola was detained for four years, he died under suspicious circumstances on the day that he was due to be released, on July 7, 1998.
It seems no one is happy over this name change? Not even the family of Late MKO Abiola.
