Demands justice for deceased
The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Olayemi Oyebanji, has condemned the killing of a female student of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), Miss Deborah Modupe Atanda in strong terms.
The First Lady expressed her profound sorrow upon learning about the tragic killing of Deborah, a 200 Level student of the Department of Nursing at FUOYE, empathizing with the family of the deceased and the university community who are mourning the loss of a promising student.
Dr. Oyebanji conveyed her shock and heartbreak upon receiving the news of the student’s untimely demise. She described the killing as an act of sheer wickedness, shocking in its brutality, heartrending to the core, and absolutely condemnable.
According to her, such act of violence has no place in a civilized academic community where future leaders are nurtured.
She emphasized that a university should serve as an environment for academic pursuits and the exchange of ideas, and it should never become a site of tragedy where the destinies of the next generation of leaders are cut short.
As a mother herself, Dr. Oyebanji shared the agonizing pain of losing such a daughter with a promising and bright future. She acknowledged that only the grace of Almighty God can provide solace to heal the broken hearts of the grieving family.
Dr. Oyebanji extended her heartfelt condolences to the parents of the slain student, praying that God would grant them the strength and fortitude to bear the immense loss of their precious daughter.
The Ekiti First Lady pleaded that every possible human effort should be exerted by the security operatives to identify and bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice in honour of Deborah’s memory.
