FUOYE killings: God will judge Fayemi’s wife – NANS

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has condemned wife of Ekiti State Governor, Bisi Fayemi, for attempting to distance herself from the death of two students of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) during a protest over poor electricity.


“Almighty God is the biggest judge and will dispense judgement as due to her”, NANS PRO, Comrade Adeyemi Azeez, said in Abeokuta on Thursday.


NANS called on the federal government to probe the killings by Nigeria Police officers and ensure justice is done.


He said: “We read with dismay, the reaction of the suspected assailant where she made baseless claims but for us as students and young people who have what it takes to fight her, considering the quantum of our population, we know that God almighty is the biggest Judge and will dispense judgement due to her.
“In fact, Ekiti people have coined a new name for the woman which is ‘a woman with 9 mouths’ considering the spate at which she was telling lies through her release yesterday.

“Firstly: the Ekiti first lady said she was in the hall when the students started rampaging and allegedly destroying people’s vehicle.


“This statement is too sweet to be true; can such riot act be going on outside the hall to the extent that people’s vehicles were being damaged and the owners of the vehicles remained calm in the hall?


“Secondly as the first lady, she claimed to remain in the hall while the damages were being done, why not address the students instead of ignoring them, if truly she wasn’t wishing and praying evil for the students.
“If truly she regards the students as her children, why not speak to them instead of ordering the police to be ruthless with them.


“Also, if truly you have a heart of gold you should be concerned about what happened to the students and not running away.


“You and your husband have the state powers and as a result should be able to restore normalcy to any uproar, that is why you were elected.


“Her husband, who used to be one of our well-respected elders in NANS, is also gradually losing our respect as he has not said anything since this crisis started, instead he is busy fighting for security votes.



“If we have our way, we would suggest that Ekiti state security vote be removed since the governor has not been making judicious use of the ones he has been collecting which is evident in his inability to secure our students.


“We must, however, note that even if your security votes is increased to N5 billion on a monthly basis, we would still not surrender the lives of our students to you.


“We, however, call on the federal government to probe this killing of our students in Ekiti as this can best be described as a ‘state planned assassination.


“Even when the rich oppress the poor in Nigeria, it is not done in the open but the reverse was the case of Mrs Fayemi who threw two families into sorrow and gnashing of teeth without remorse.



“And against the expectation of mothers, Erelu as fondly called, could still lie even when the lives of two promising young Nigerians were involved.



“This pitiable situation which has been on between the rich and the poor might graduate into a revolt of the poor in this country.



“Despite our respect for Governor Fayemi, his wife has successfully turned our backs against each other as we would not toy with the life of any of our students.”

OYE PROTEST: EKITI GOVERNMENT VISITS, CONDOLES WITH FAMILIES OF SLAIN FUOYE STUDENTS



The Ekiti State government has commiserated with the families of Joseph Okunofua and Kehinde Dada, students of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) who lost their lives during Tuesday’s protest in Oye-Ekiti.

The government delegation comprising the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Biodun Oyebanji; Chief of Staff to the Governor, Hon Biodun Omoleye; Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social development, Chief (Mrs) Moji Fafure; Commissioner for Environment, Hon Gbenga Ageyo; lawmaker representing Ido/Osi 1 at the State Assembly, Hon. Abiodun Fawekun, and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Women Affairs, Dr (Mrs) Enuice Oladimeji, visited the two families in Ido-Ekiti and Usi –Ekiti on Friday afternoon.

The delegation led by Hon. Oyebanji visited Mrs Esther Okunofua, mother of Joseph, who was a 300 level student of Biology Education in Ido -Ekiti and Mr and Mrs Adedayo Dada, parents of Kehinde Dada in Usi Ekiti.

Oyebanji said the visit was at the instance the State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi; who was saddened by the unfortunate incident, adding that the visit was to demonstrate that the state government share in their grief and to encourage them during the trying period.

“On the instruction of the governor, delegation of the government is here to condole with the families that lost their loved ones during the unfortunate incident that happened in Oye Ekiti. We are here to commiserate, encourage them to take heart and to assure them that government is with them in this trying period”, Oyebanji said.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Chief (Mrs) Moji Fafure who also spoke with the parents in Yoruba language urged the parents of the deceased to take solace in the word of God as no amount of counselling can fill the vacuum created by the irreparable loss. She also prayed for the families.

“The Governor and his wife sent their condolence messages. They share in your grief over the unfortunate incident and they prayed that God in His mercies will not allow a reoccurrence. The loss is painful but it is our prayer that the Almighty God will keep your remaining children safe. Never again will you bury any of your children”, she said.

At the resident of the late Kehinde Dada, the deceased’s elder brother, Bankole Dada thanked the government delegation for sharing in their grief.

Text of broadcast by Governor Kayode Fayemi on the Violent Protest at the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State


Ekitikete,

I have in the last few days agonised over the incident that took place at the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.

Until the multiple investigations are completed, I am necessarily constrained from talking about the details of what transpired. I however do not need to be constrained about the emotions a tragedy like this evokes.

Any death is a tragedy. Any shooting arising from legitimate protests diminishes our fledgling democratic dispensation and calls to question our commitment to fundamental human rights.

Having heard from all parties to the incident, it is pertinent that I now personally convey my deeply felt sorrow for the loss of two promising young lives and for those who suffered injuries.

To be sure, our government prides itself on its strict adherence to the rule of law. The right of citizens to protest on any issue relating to governmental actions or inactions is a fundamental component of our good governance agenda.

We could not therefore under any circumstances have directed that deadly force be used on any of our citizens freely expressing their right to protest.

Even before the conclusion of the investigations into this matter, we have taken a number of steps; a high level government delegation has visited the families of the deceased. This will not be a one-off intervention. We will stand firmly with, and support the families at this time. Those persons with varying degrees of injuries will also be given support whilst their hospital expenses will be defrayed by government.

I have directed the State Commissioner of Police to urgently commence an investigation into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate shooting incident with a view to identifying possible culprits within and outside the Force. Taken together with the ongoing investigation by the University management, we will consider the need for an independent panel of inquiry, if necessary once these fact finding investigations are concluded.

In the meantime, I have suggested to our police authorities to explore the use of non-lethal rubber bullets in managing public protests and the Nigerian Governors Forum will take this up at the highest levels in government.

I note the initial public statement by the University authorities and its Students Union body. We welcome the conclusion that neither the wife of the Governor nor any Government official directed the shootings. Indeed it is obvious that the wife of the Governor and those on her entourage are victims of this unfortunate incident.

The issue that led to the protest has been the subject of intense disagreement and negotiations with BEDC since I became Governor. Last week, my Commissioner for Infrastructure and Public Utilities was still in Benin to see BEDC management on the matter of inadequate and inconsistent supply of electricity in Ekiti State. Though Governors do not have any control over privatised power distribution companies, the four Governors from the states covered by the Benin DISCO have consistently expressed dissatisfaction with the services of BEDC and taken the matter up with the Vice President who chairs the Privatisation Council.

In addition to this, I have been talking to the Rural Electrification Agency about including FUOYE in the next round of their University Electrification Project.

I therefore appeal for calm and caution as we await the reports of the various investigations. No persons or group should attempt to use this tragic incident to destabilise the peace and progress of Ekiti State. It is time for sober reflection as we mourn the dead and care for the wounded.

Thank you and God bless you all.

Dr Kayode Fayemi, CON

Governor, Ekiti State.
