FUOYE VC alleges threat to life by unknown men
Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, has raised the alarm over threat to his life by unknown men who invaded his office last week Thursday.
According to a statement by the spokesperson to the Vice Chancellor, Wole Balogun, the suspicious move by the men who claimed to have come from the police special fraud unit allegedly to deliver a letter of invitation to the VC and insisted that the delivery must be made in person, further fuelled the suspension.
He said: “The security personnel in the university suspected a foul-play when the suspected men failed to provide a written clearance from the Ekiti State Commissioner of Police, but instead created a drama by making frantic effort to find their way into the Vice Chancellor’s office with an obvious intention to whisk him away from the campus.
“The officers wanted to force their way into the VC’s office after allegedly identifying themselves as officers from the NSFU.
“But the smart and professional security men attached to the Central Administration office of the university insisted that the strange men introduce themselves properly and also show incontrovertible evidence of the clearance from the federal security agencies attached to Ekiti State and the university.
“We have no doubt that the men were on a sinister mission. But they failed woefully. The people who came never contacted us or invited the Vice Chancellor before they came. There is no agency of government that has ever invited us that we did not honour their invitation.
“We want the whole world to know that this strange development has since thrown the whole university community into a serious tension and a state of apprehension.”
“The concern of many members of staff and students now is that if the VC could be so assaulted, who else is safe? We consider this as a breach of security protocol, and threat to the lives of the VC and the university community as a whole.”
