Suspected armed bandits have killed the Deputy Registrar of the Federal University of Technology (FUTA), Akure, Ondo State, Dr. Amos Arijesuyo.
Arijesuyo, who is also a Senior Pastor at the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Glory of God, FUTA, was shot by the gunmen along the Ilesa- Akure Expressway in Osun State Saturday.
A pastor at the CAC, Olu Aladesanmi, who confirmed the incident, said the registrar was attacked along with his driver and one other person on Saturday evening.
He said: “The pastor, who is also a deputy registrar at FUTA, and his driver were fortunate to have survived the attack with bullet wounds but they were now receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.”
Furthermore, the Head of Media and Protocols of FUTA, Adegbenro Adebanjo on Monday condemned the killing of the Deputy Registrar.
Adebanjo said, “Dr. Arijesuyo’s death is a big loss to FUTA, the academic community in Nigeria, and beyond.
“It is a death that should not have happened in the first place. It is the hope of the management, staff and students of FUTA that security agencies will go after the evil men who carried out the dastardly act and make them face the full weight of the law and just recompense for their heinous crime.”
