The Federation of Ekiti State Students Union (FESSU), Ekiti State University (EKSU) branch, has urged the Executive State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to beef up security on the campus following frequent cases of alleged invasion by security agents, hooliganism, cultism and other physical violence in the university campus.
According to reports, two weeks ago, some operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), had barged into the institution and arrested four undergraduate students for undisclosed reasons.
FESSU appealed to the governor to provide social amenities such as electricity and water to complement security on campus.
The students also appealed to the governor to establish a mechanism that would ensure even and adequate disbursement of bursary and scholarship from the state government in order to arrest the current trend that channels them to children of politicians.
The requests were contained in a statement signed by FESSU, EKSU President, Alegbeleye Ayorinde as the union expressed displeasure at the arrest and unlawful incerceration of some students of the institution without linking them to any verifiable crime.
“Another problem which causes impediment in the academic performance in our dear institution is the problem of lack od electricity. The last time electricity was experienced in the campus was 2014, during the first term of Dr. Fayemi. Therefore, we want the government to continue the good works,” FESSU added.
