Fayemi Suspends Provost Of School That Made 100 Students Land In Hospital Over Fumigation

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has suspended the College of Health Sciences and Technology provost Cecilia Adebayo over 100 students who took ill following firefighters’ fumigation of the school.

The suspension was announced in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by Yinka Oyebode, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor.

According to the statement, the suspension will be in force pending the outcome of the investigation into the circumstances that led to the hospitalisation of no fewer than 100 students of the institution after controversial fumigation.

The statement added that the suspension would be without prejudice to the outcome of a meeting of the college’s governing council slated for next week.

In the same vein, the governor ordered that the Federal Fire Services officials, who carried out the fumigation, should report to their headquarters in Abuja.

Consequently, the governor had constituted a panel to investigate what the statement described as an unfortunate incident.
