Parents Rejects 400-level Son’s Corpse From Police.
The body of a 400-level student of Business Administration Department of the Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Seyi Fasere, who was allegedly killed by the police in Oye Ekiti has been rejected by the deceased’s parents. The 28-year-old undergraduate was allegedly killed by the police and labelled an armed robber.
Parents of the deceased, Mr. Joseph and Florence Fasere with their family lawyer said the body of their son was rejected because the police being killers of the young man should not be the investigator of the case but a judicial panel of inquiry instituted by the state government.
The family insisted that Seyi was not an armed robber but a victim of police’s extra-judicial killing. They said the police has equally tarnished the family name by calling its son an armed robber.
