The family of the abducted student of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, FUNAAB, who breathed the air of freedom on Monday night, Toyinbo Nathaniel Olayinka, has paid a ‘thank you’ visit to the management of the institution for its “timely and pro-active” response, disclosing that “our son was tortured by his abductors, but he’s safe and sound.”
A statement by the university’s Head of Directorate of Public Relations, Kola Adepoju, revealed that the family’s representative, Mr.John Oyeleye, strolled into the university’s Students Union Building, where and when the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Kolawole Salako, was incidentally having a robust interactive meeting with all the executives of the students’ bodies on campus at Union, Colleges and Associations levels, to appraise the release of their colleagues and other issues bordering on the welfare of the entire students.
Oyeleye, who came in while the meeting was rounding up, thanked the Prof. Salako-led management for a job well done in drafting security agencies and other stakeholders on time to secure the release of their son.
Oyeleye said that the concern and proactiveness of the Vice-Chancellor, in particular, affirmed that he’s indeed a father and a good shepherd, who will not recklessly abandoned his lost sheep, simply because of the comfort of having hundreds of other sheep, in apparent reference to the students of the university.
Disclosing that Toyinbo is hale and hearty, Oyeleye lamented that “he was tortured by his abductors.”
