Fayemi finally speaks on FUOYE killings
The Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has finally spoken on the killing of two students of Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti, by police officers.
He condemned the shooting and promised to support the family of the slain students and pay the medical bills of the injured students.
The governor’s statement was published on the Ekiti State Government’s Twitter handle on Sunday.
PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how two students of the institution, Oluwaseyi Kehinde and Joseph Okonofua, were killed by police bullets during a protest last Tuesday.
Many other students were also injured when the students protested poor electricity supply in Oye and Ikole Ekiti.
The convoy of Bisi Fayemi, the wife of the Ekiti State governor, was also attacked during the protest.
The protest turned violent after a police officer attached to Mrs Fayemi’s convoy slapped a student leader, witnesses told PREMIUM TIMES.
Despite the fatalities, the police in Ekiti claimed its officers did not fire any shot.
