Two FUOYE Students Shot Dead During ‘Peaceful Protest’

The police have shot two students of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State (FUOYE), during a peaceful protest over poor power supply in the school.

In return, the irate student allegedly beat a policeman to death and set the office of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company and a police van ablaze.

This wasn’t the first time that these youths are protesting as they had earlier cried out for a change four months ago. The visibly-angry students carried placards with inscriptions such as “Say No to NEPAPHOBIA”; “We need power” and chanting “we need power” in songs.

One of the protesters, Okedare Gbenga, a 300-level student of Geology department lamented how students pay for light but they don’t enjoy it.
