For Immediate Press Release.
My name is Ifemosu Michael Adewale. I am a Nigerian citizen and the recent student who was unlawfully expelled from the Federal University of Agriculture, FUNAAB, Abeokuta for writing an open letter to Funaab management over the Lingering Transportation issue and Insecurity.
At exactly 1:am on Tuesday ,
March 17, 2020, some set of hired assasins came to my apartment around Apakila camp with Sharp Cutlassses and Guns, they Tore the Net of my Room and afterwards moved to the last room in my compound, tore the Net and started shouting ‘Where is Adewale’ It was a Lady’s Room and after she screamed that I was not around, they peeped through the windows with their torch lights to affirm my presence, when they could not find me, they left with words ‘He is Fighting the VC’. Earlier before this Incidence, I have received a lot of threatening calls through private numbers telling me they will kill me for challenging my unlawful and illegal expulsion from the university and thereby ridiculing the Vice-Chancellor.
I know the subjects of this petition, Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako is a favoured citizen of this government, and I am not.
I know Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako is close to those in power at the moment, whereas I am an ordinary citizen.
I know Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako has money and influence (which are factors that are widely acknowledged to aid a suspect walk away with murder in Nigeria), but I have none of these. I know Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako have all the arsenals at his disposal, and I have none.
In the circumstance, I am making this petition public so that when you refuse to attend to my complaint and outcry, the ordinary people of this country will, at least, know from where my death came and I will not join the long list of unresolved murders.
My killer, should, at least be known.
Thank you for, at least, reading my petition.
