FUOYE: Ekiti Govt Sends Delegation To Parents Of Slain Students

Ekiti State Government has sent a delegation to families of two students of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, who were shot dead during a protest against incessant power outage in their school.

The Police had said that no one died during the incident.

However, President of the Student Union Government of FUOYE, Oluwaseun Awodola, gave the names of the deceased students as Oluwaseyi Kehinde Dada, a 100-level student of Crop Science and Horticulture; and Joseph Okunofua, a 300-level student of Biology Education.

Awodola insisted that the police must be held accountable for the death of the students.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, had claimed that the students attacked the convoy of the wife of the state governor, Bisi Fayemi.

Ikechukwu also alleged that the students assaulted policemen and damaged a police vehicle.

He denied that the Police shot any student at the scene.

The Ekiti State Government on Friday sent a delegation of senior government officials to the families of the slain students.
