The Management of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti has resolved to surcharge students who refused to release keys to their rooms and conveniences when they were ordered to vacate the campus upon insecurity.
The Management, in a release from the Chairman HMC, dated Oct 20, 2023 to all students in the University, expressed shock that some rooms and conveniences were locked by their former occupants who refused to drop the keys with the porters on duty.
It explained that the development is against the policy of the University as stated in the students’ Handbook of Information.
The policy stated, “All door keys must be deposited at the porters lodge when students leave the hall. At the end of the tenancy, students must return all the door and locker keys in their possession to the porters lodge.”
“Such keys shall not be taken away from the University. Any student who takes away the keys to his/her room on the expiration of his/her tenancy shall be surcharged,” the Handbook explained.
“The belonging of such student (s) will be removed to the store in the Hall as the University will not accept any responsibility for the damage to such property,” the Handbook stated further.
“Consequently all occupants of the affected rooms and conveniences that are locked will be surcharged according to the University’s regulation as stated,” it added.
However, the Management explained that hostels will not be open to students until Tuesday Oct. 24, 2023 by 2pm due to the corrosive nature of the chemical used for fumigating the hostel.
FUOYE’s students were sent on compulsory break over the tragic death of Atanda Modupe Deborah, a 200- level Nursing students who was first declared missing, but found to have been murdered by suspected ritualists.
It will be recalled that the Management of the institution has declared Monday 23, Oct. as the resumption day for both the freshers and stale students.
