THE Federal of Ekiti State Students’ Union (FESSU), Ekiti State University (EKSU) chapter, has called on the Executive Governor of the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to provide adequate security for the students within and outside the campus.
The students’ union made the call in a statement signed by the President of the union, Temitayo Alegbeleye which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday.
Alegbeleye stated that the students of the institution were becoming scared of entering the campus because of fear of unlawful arrest and embarrassment by some uniformed men.
He said the level of insecurity and unlawful arrest of students was becoming alarming, adding that it could lead to unrest on the campus if not urgently checked.
FESSU President appealed to the State Government to curb criminal activities such as robbery, hooliganism, cultism and other physical violence in the university.
“The situation of insecurity of EKSU students is becoming a thing of concern for us; we observed that some uniformed men, claiming to be police officers have started harassing students within and outside the campus.
“Virtually, all the students have been humiliated after being accused of being fraudsters ro dubious persons. We are appealing to the state governor, Dr. Fayemi to come to our rescue and stop this unlawful harassment,” he stated.
