Peace restored to Malete - Management of Kwara State University says after raid by NDLEA

The Management of Kwara State University (KWASU) has reacted to the arbitrary sting operations carried out by the EFCC and NDLEA on students of the institution.

 

Earlier on Thursday, Feb. 22, footage from Malete, Kwara State, showed students of the school burning tyres and revolting after a raid by NDLEA operatives (read here).

 

This comes just two days after EFCC operatives also allegedly picked up students who owned expensive phones and asked them to explain their wealth.

 

Following the chaos that ensued by the NDLEA sting operation, the school’s Management waded in and restored peace. The school said contrary to reports, no live was lost.

 

A statement signed by the school’s Registrar, Dr. Kikelomo W. Sallee, reads: “PEACE RESTORED TO MALETE

 

“Following the unrest that broke out this evening in Malete, the Management of Kwara State University wishes to inform all students and staff of KWASU that peace has been restored to Malete community.

 

“We therefore, urge all to remain calm and lawful.

 

“We also wish to state that contrary to reports on social media, no one was shot, and no live was lost in the unrest.

 

“Management has been liaising with, and will meet the EFCC and NDLEA  on the arbitrary sting operations on our student body. Management does not condone roughhandling of bona fide students of our great University, and we urge our dear students to uphold peaceful  and orderly conduct for which our Great KWASU is known.

 

“We are committed to providing a safe and enabling environment for our students and will ensure that they learn develop, and graduate within the stipulated time frame.

 

“As such, the Harmattan semester examinations that is currently ongoing will continue as scheduled.

 

“We urge all Great KWASUSITES to remain calm and go about their lawful activities without fear. Thank you.”
