Below is a video showing the moment police opened fire on protesting FUOYE students in Ekiti State.
The shooting saw the instant death of a student while another, Okonofua Joseph aka Joseph Icon, was later confirmed dead.
Joseph Icon was a 300 level student of FUOYE and a strong lover of the Nigerian Police Force. Report has it that he was shot while walking the street.
A picture he once posted on social media shows the caption: “I love the Naija police”.
Before his death, he was a member of the department of Biology Education who also doubled as the Social Director of Faculty of Education Students Association.
The protest by the students was against the poor electricity supply in their area of residence.
Unfortunately, they clashed with police officers attached to the convoy of the First Lady of Ekiti State, Mrs Fayemi, who was passing through the neighborhood.
She has however denied ordering the police officers to open fire on the students.
