A student of the Federal University of Oye Ekiti, FUOYE, Oluwaseyi Kehinde, who was allegedly killed by officers attached to the Ekiti State Police Command during protest over poor electricity supply in school has been buried amidst tears.
Recall that news emerged on Tuesday that FUOYE students were having a peaceful protest before the tragic incident with the cops attached to the convoy of the wife of the State Governor, Bisi Fayemi.
Two students, Oluwaseyi Kehinde, a 100- level student of the Department of Crop Science and Horticulture and Okonofua Joseph aka ICON, 300 student of Biology Education were allegedly gunned down by officers.
But the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Caleb Ikechukwu, told newsmen that the police didn’t kill anyone, claiming that the students attacked the convoy of Mrs Fayemi and allegedly damaged some official vans.
Meanwhile, the police in Ekiti have announced the arrest of two students of FUOYE in connection with the alleged attack on Mrs Fayemi.
The Police Commissioner in the state, Mr Asuquo Amba, who disclosed this told newsmen in Ado Ekiti that:
”Two persons have been arrested and one of them has already confessed to committing the crime. When a crime is committed, we don’t fold our arms and watch.
“Even a civilian can effect arrest if crime is committed in front of him and hand the suspects over to the police.
”It is sad that the police are being attacked by criminals and the civilians who we are protecting are also attacking our people.
“We won’t rest until all the perpetrators of this dastardly attack are arrested and brought to justice.”
