The Federation of Ekiti State Students’ Union (FESSU), Ekiti State University (EKSU) chapter, on Thursday appealed to Governor Kayode Fayemi, to checkmate activities of the security operatives within and outside the campus.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the President of the union, Mr Temitayo Alegbeleye in Ado-Ekiti.
Alegbeleye said that the students were becoming scared of entering the university campus because of the fear of unlawful arrest and embarrassment by some uniformed men.
He added that police harassment and unlawful arrests could lead to unrest on the campus if not checked.
The president of the union further appealed to the State government to curb criminal acts such as robbery, hooliganism, cultism and other physical violence in the university.
“The situation of insecurity of EKSU students is becoming a thing of concern for us; we observed that some uniformed men, claiming to be police officers have started harassing students within and outside the campus.
“Virtually, all the students have been humiliated after being accused of being fraudsters or dubious persons.
“We are appealing to the state governor, Dr Fayemi to come to our rescue and stop this unlawful harassment,” Alegbeleye said.
