ASUU to IGP: Arrest UI’s Prof. Ajewole’s killers

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has urged Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba, to assist the Oyo State Command with logistics support needed to apprehend the killers of Prof. Opeyemi Ajewole.

Ayo Akinwole, Chairman, University of Ibadan (UI) Chapter of ASUU, made the plea in a statement in Ibadan on Thursday.

The NewsZenith reports that until his death, Ajewole was a lecturer at Department of Social and Environmental Forestry Development of the university.

Some yet-to-be-identified assailants shot Ajewole dead on Monday, June 5 in Ibadan, Oyo State.

ASUU has, therefore, tasked President Bola Tinubu to take a passionate interest and ensure the security operatives unmask the murderers of the professor.

“The hearts of every ASUU-UI member are bleeding profusely as if pierced by swords.

“Our bones shook so tremendously as if our marrows were naked in the tundra region.

“We condemn, in totality, the gruesome murder of our comrade, Prof. Opeyemi Ajewole.

“And we charge the security operatives to apprehend the perpetrators of this dastardly act and bring them to book,” Prof. Akinwole stated.

According to him, the only tribute that the death of Prof. Ajewole deserves is for the security operatives to bring his killers to justice.

“Nigerians’ lives should matter to the Tinubu presidency.

“Late Prof. Ajewole’s gruesome murder again reminds us of how valueless human lives have become in our clime.”

He noted that death lurks in all imaginable and unimaginable corners of this country and comes cheaply.

“The Nigerian populace is constantly assailed by terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, armed robbery, assassination, hunger, unemployment.”
