No incident of rape, robbery occurence in our Campus- FUOYE

….refutes   attacks on students

The Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) has cleared air on the alleged incidents of robbery and rape attacks on the students of the University in Ikole community. The University management said such incident did not happen on the campus of the University because the management has provided very tight and reliable security for all students and staff of the University.

Speaking on behalf of the institution, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (administration) , Prof. Tajudeen Opoola, said the news that has gone viral with the claim that FUOYE students are decrying incessant robbery and rape attacks on the campus is false and misleading. He clarified that the incidents had happened outside the premises of the University which is the community where the students who live off campus, reside .

He wondered why the breaking of such news would give an erroneous impression that the ugly and life threatening incidents might have happened on FUOYE campus in lkole.

Prof. Opoola said: “ FUOYE is a well secured environment for all students and staff. We have put in place security measures that will prevent such tragic incidents. Everything possible and necessary has been done to ensure that our students are safe on campus. We have very cordial relationship and fruitful cooperations with all our host communities on matters relating to the security of our students.

The alleged incidents of rape and robbery attacks did not happen on our campus in lkole and could not have happened on the campus. We have the best quality of security gadgets and personnel on ground to prevent such incidents of robbery and rape on campus.

So, we urge all our students to be rest assured that they are safe on campus. We also urge them to desist from late night movement and for those living off campus, they should be mindful of their environment. How secured it is , they should not walk alone in lonely, bushy places at odd hours whenever they are outside the campus.

For the recent incidents, our security unit has been on top of the situation, taking necessary actions needed to prevent such occurrence in the future. Once again, we urge all students to remain calm and security conscious whenever they are outside the university premiers.
