Fuoye killings: The need for Restraint and Understanding by Hon Akinlayo Kolawole


The bubbling town of Oye Ekiti last week was on the news for the wrong reason with the fracas between the students and the security agencies unfortunately claiming the lives of two students of the University.
It is however noteworthy that her excellency Mrs Fayemi, a thorough bred and a Mother did not and will never order the innocent killings of the students and as such insinuations should be dispelled as it obviosly lacked merit and does not represent the reality of the situation
Ekiti state born politician Hon Akinlayo Kolawole popular known as A.K branded the incident unfortunate and totally avoidable as he took time to commiserate with the victims parent, in his words, he said Although no words could assuage the anguish of their bereavement but they should take comfort in the good memories of the departed and pray that God grants the parents the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.The politician who further admonished the Management of Federal university of Oye Ekiti to exercise caution in dealing with the situation with the view to stemming the frailed nerves and preventing further aggravation and equally urged the security agencies to be professional in confronting issues relating to student’s picketing and agitations and should take leaf from the developed countries as they aspire to conduct themselves in tandem with global best practices. He urged all sides to exercise restraint and called for calm within the university environment and Ekiti state generally with the view to fostering and engendering a better and prosperous Ekiti state.
