Two Nigerian Professors were among the 157 people that lost their lives in the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed earlier today.

While Prof. Abiodun Bashua traveled with his Nigerian passport, Professor Pius Adesanmi traveled with his Canadian passport.

The duo were heading to Nairobi, Kenya, to attend a CIDO/ECOSOCC meeting.

The aircraft, a Boeing 737 MAX 8, took off at 08:38am (05:38 GMT) and lost contact with air traffic controllers, 6 minutes later and crashed near Bishoftu.

Bashua was a respected retired Nigerian diplomat with many years with the UN, while Adesanmi was a Nigerian-Canadian professor of English at the Carleton University, Canada.
