Students of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) on Monday barricaded the main gate of the institution to pro­test against the extortion by one of the lecturers in the institution, Dr Dosu Malomo.

The students also de­manded that the institu­tion’s authorities should put necessary machineries in motion to facilitate the conduct of elections into its Students’ Union Gov­ernment (SUG).

They said that they would not sit for their ex­aminations until the SUG was inaugurated. It was learnt that the university was yet to fix the date for the examinations.

They also asked the in­stitution’s management to do away with the exter­nal security personnel on campus since the school had fully resumed from the strike embarked upon by its Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU).

Dr Malomo, who is also the Acting-Dean, Students’ Affairs of the institution, was alleged to have been collecting N500 each for tutorials without issuing any receipts.

NAN reports that the action of the students pre­vented members of staff from entering the campus for their normal business.

NAN also reports that although the protest was peaceful, the students de­manded the immediate removal of Malomo.

They called for the im­mediate reinstatement and extension of the tenure of the out-going Dean, Stu­dents’ Affairs, Dr Olug­benga Adeyemi.

The Speaker, Students’ Representative Council, Victor Akinnibosun, who spoke on behalf of the stu­dents, said there would not be 2016/2017 second semester examinations until the elected members of students’ union govern­ment are inaugurated.
