Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi’s wife, Bisi has escaped death by whiskers.
We gathered that students of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) were protesting insufficient supply of electricity and marched to the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) substation in Oye Ekiti, barricading the express road.
The protesters reportedly vented their anger on Bisi Fayemi, the first lady of the state, whose convoy was prevented from passing.
Policemen in her convoy were said to have opened fire which annoyed students who in turn shattered the windscreen of vehicles in her convoy.
Two students of the school and a policeman were reportedly killed in a clash between the police and students.
A source said; “They started the protest from the school gate around 9am, and then moved to the PHCH substation.”
“They were trying to force their way into the facility when a dispatch of policemen came. The students appeared to have outnumbered the policemen and before we knew it, gunshots were exchanged between the policemen and some of the students who are suspected to be cultists.”
“One of the policemen and two students were killed and others sustained injuries.”
