Prof. Kayode Soremekun, Vice-Chancellor of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has accused Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, of threatening his life.
The Nation reports that Soremekun is accusing Fayose of giving support to union leaders to destabilize the institution.
He said: “He (Fayose) ordered his convoy to stop and tore the banner of our convocation. He said it was not properly done, he alighted himself and tore it by himself before proceeding on his journey.
“The unionists were becoming so unruly in recent time. In fact, they beat up some lecturers and we called for their arrest only for the Secretary to the State Government(SSG) to bail them out acting on governor’s directive.
The Ekiti state Government has however issued a statement debunking the VC’s claim.
