NANS blames Fayemi’s wife for killing of FUOYE students

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) on Wednesday condemned the alleged killing of two students of Federal University Oye Ekiti and injuring of others by security details attached to Chief (Mrs.) Bisi Fayemi, wife of Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi.

The students – Dada Kehinde Abiodun, a part one student at the Department of Crop Science and Horticulture and another were allegedly shot dead during protest on Tuesday by security personnel in the convoy of Mrs. Fayemi.

In a statement in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, by Azeez Adeyemi, the National Public Relations Officer, NANS Azeez wondered what the Governor’s wife expected the students to do other than protest against a Governor that could not address the electricity challenges in Oye Ekiti, a bustling town in Ekiti State.

The NANS image maker stated that troubled started when the protesting students sighted the wife of the Governor and wanted to explain their reason for the protest to her but one of her security personnel slapped the Students Union President in the process.

Azeez added this sparked the anger of the students who then pelted Bisi Fayemi’s convoy with sachet waters, an action, he claimed further, impelled the Governor’s wife to allegedly order her security aides to be ruthless with the students.

He stated: “A student, Dada Kehinde Abiodun, a Part 1 student of the Department of Crop Science and Horticulture was killed while some others were severely injured and are receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre.

“One of the students placed under intensive care has also gave up the ghost during the early hours of today.

“Meanwhile, so as to distort the truth before it gets to the public domain, the government quickly rushed to the press and fed them with lies all because they are in possession of the financial capacity to do and undo.

“It is however important to note that although we do not have the financial muzzle to contend with you in the media but we shall explore every lawful means to communicate the anti – students attitude of Mrs. Fayemi to the world.

“To this end, we have however declared the wife of Governor Fayemi a persona non grata anywhere 50meters of any university campus, as we request her to always keep 50 meters away from all our campuses in the country as she constitutes threat to the lives of our students.

“We are not ignorant of the move of the government to kidnap our comrades when sighted anywhere in the state.

“As a result of this unholy plot by the Ekiti state government, we would protest her wicked act in at least one state from each of the geo -political zones of the country, with effect from Monday 16, September, 2019.

“We however appealed to mothers and other international communities to join force with us to condemn this inhuman act.”
