The Federal University, Oye Ekiti, has been thrown into turmoil following the tragic death of a student on Tuesday morning, which the institution’s management has attributed to the ongoing strike action by the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (NASU). As tensions escalate, students are expressing their dismay and concerns over the situation.

Blaming NASU:

In a statement issued by FUOYE Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Fasina, the university’s management pointed fingers at NASU for the unfortunate incident. According to Prof. Fasina, the closure of the institution’s clinic due to the strike led to the inability of the asthmatic student to receive timely medical attention, ultimately resulting in his demise. The Vice Chancellor accused NASU of spreading misinformation and inciting violence, which led to the invasion of the university premises by hoodlums.

Student Outrage:

Students of FUOYE have expressed outrage and disbelief at the management’s accusations against NASU. Many are questioning the validity of the claims and demanding accountability from the university’s leadership. The tragic loss of a fellow student has sparked anger and frustration among the student body, who feel let down by the authorities.

Counterclaims by NASU:

In response to the allegations, NASU chairman, Oluwaseun Faleye, has vehemently denied any responsibility for the student’s death. He stated that NASU had duly notified the university of the planned strike action and accused the management of attempting to intimidate union members. Faleye refuted claims of inciting violence and challenged the university to provide evidence to support its allegations.

Calls for Transparency:

Amidst the conflicting narratives, students are calling for transparency and accountability from both the university management and NASU. There is a growing sense of frustration over the lack of clarity surrounding the circumstances leading to the student’s death and the ongoing strike action. Students are urging all parties involved to prioritize the well-being and safety of the university community.

SUG Clarification:

In a separate development, the Student Union Government (SUG) has clarified misconceptions regarding the ban on bikes within the university premises. Contrary to speculation, the SUG asserts that it was the Oye community, not the SUG, that implemented the ban on bikes. This clarification aims to dispel any misunderstandings and ensure accurate information reaches the student body.


The tragic death of a student at FUOYE has sparked controversy and raised questions about the management of the institution and the role of NASU in the ongoing strike action. As investigations continue, students are demanding transparency, accountability, and swift action to address the underlying issues and prevent future tragedies.
