The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Ibadan chapter has enjoined security operatives not to waste more time to track down and arrest killers of one of its members.

ASUU made this disclosure on Thursday.

DAILY POST recalls that a member of the union, Professor Opeyemi Isaac Ajewole of the department of Social and environmental forestry development at the University of Ibadan was killed by yet to be identified individuals.

ASUU told the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba to assist the Oyo State Police Command with all logistics support needed to unravel and arrest the killers of the don.

The union made these declarations in a statement signed by its Chairman, Professor Ayo Akinwole.

Akinwole, in the statement made available to DAILY POST, tasked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to take passionate interest and ensure the security operatives unmasked the faces behind the murder of the deceased.

He condemned the gruesome murder of Adewole in totality.

“The hearts of every ASUU-UI member are bleeding so profusely as if pierced by swords. Our bones shook so tremendously as if our marrows were naked in the tundra region.

“We condemn in totality the gruesome murder of our comrade, Professor Opeyemi Isaac Ajewole and charge the security operatives to track down and apprehend the perpetrators of this dastardly act, with a view to unravelling the motive behind the incident, as well as bringing the perpetrators to book.

“The Union wishes to use this teary occasion of Professor Ajewole’s sudden death to call on the Nigerian state to resolutely tackle the problem of insecurity in the country, apprehend the killers of Professor Ajewole and punish them most appropriately.

“This is the least tribute that this nation can pay to our fallen hero and friend- Professor Opeyemi Isaac Ajewole.”
