FUOYE Crisis: Ekiti elders task Police on professionalism

From  Priscilla Ofunre, Ado-Ekiti
Following the Tuesday’s protest in Oye-Ekiti, the Ekiti Council of Elders has expressed grief over the killing of two undergraduates of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.
The Council appealed to the Police to be more professional while discharging their duties and handling sensitive, critical situations to avert bloodshed.
Two FUOYE’s students were on Tuesday shot during a violent protest in Oye-Ekiti, where the convoy of the Ekiti State First Lady, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, was attacked.
A statement signed by the Council’s Chairman, Prof. Joseph Oluwasanmi in Ado-Ekiti, on Saturday, commiserated with the state government and families of those who lost their lives during the protest.
“The council is grateful to God for sparing the life of the First Lady, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, officials and journalists on her entourage during the crisis.
“We call on the students and youths generally to eschew violence in all ramifications in expressing their grievances.
“Also, there was need for the Nigerian Police to be more professional in handling issues of this nature”, the council stated.
In view of the open politicisation of the crisis, the Council strongly warned politicians against exploiting situations that are mournful and detrimental to the wellbeing of the populace as  political tool
