A former President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dipo Fasina, who was earlier declared missing, has been found.
Fasina was missing for about a week.
The former ASUU boss, who has been missing since 1 July 2023, is reported to have been travelling to Algeria at the invitation of the Algerian government when he missed his connecting flight from Istanbul, Turkey.
Giving an update, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) confirmed on Sunday that he has been found.
NIDCOM said it collaborated with the Nigerian High Commission in Turkey to locate the academic.
“A big thanks to the Nigerian Ambassador to Turkey who immediately sent officials to the airport to physically locate him in the very busy and huge Istanbul Airport,” NIDCOM wrote in a post on Twitter.
