OAU Students Back Erstwhile Acting V.C, Demand His Release from EFCC Net

By Justus Ogar

Students of Obafemi Awolowo University have expressed dissatisfaction over the arrest and prosecution of the erstwhile acting V.C of the University, Prof. Anthony Elujoba. The Students, drown from different departments and faculties in the institution have taken to their social media pages to agitate for the release of Elujoba.

The Prosecution of Prof. Anthony Elujoba is coming barely six months since he was called for questioning in Ibadan. Which threw the weight of the whole students behind him, even to the extent of students storming the EFCC’s office at Ibadan. Some of the Students, including;

Mr. Akinbi Tosin, describes the detention of Prof. Anthony Elujoba as a miscarriage of Justice. He also stated that the right people who are supposed to be prosecuted are not.

Again, Mr. Elijah Egbewale, a 500 level student of Estate Management is of the view that the offence of misappropriation, of which the erstwhile acting VC was charged does not hold water because the funds were actually used for the betterment of the University community and for peace to reign. Considering repeated strike actions by workers in the University community, before Prof. Anthony Elujoba became the acting VC.

Another student, Mr. Odemakin Samuel, of 300 level Demography and Social statistics department is of the view that justice should be allowed to thrive. He added that students should not disturb the court process because he is so sure the erstwhile VC will still emerge victorious.

The student Union leadership of OAU also made arrangements for students of the institution to witness the court proceedings in solidarity with the former VC, which start today at Ede, Osun State.
