Finally, it was sweet victory for 49  lecturers of the University of Ilorin as Nigeria's Supreme Court finally ruled in favor of their reinstatement to their respective positions.

The Supreme Court ordered the immediate reinstatement of the remainder of the 49 lecturers of the university following earlier reinstatement of five litigants of the same cause in June 2009. The university dons  were sacked for taking part in union activities of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)  in 2001.

After eight years of protracted lawsuits, some of the dons have died.
