Staff, students of Ondo varsity raise the alarm over activities of land grabbers


Members of staff and students of the Federal University of Agriculture, Akure, FECA, Ondo State, on Friday cried out over the activities of land grabbers within the institution.

The staff and students staged a protest over the encroachment of lands belonging to the university.

Armed with placards with various inscriptions, the protesters moved from the gate of the institution to the Zone 17 office of the Police Area Command, after which they took their grievances to the Governor’s Office and also to the palace of Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards read, ‘Don’t send FECA into extinction’, ‘Rescue FECA from land grabbers’, ‘FECA land is not for sale’, ‘Federal Government should come to FECA’s aid’, ‘Allow FECA to breathe’.

The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of the university, Kayode Sule, said the activities of the land grabbers have been affecting the training of students in various agricultural fields.


While calling on the Federal Government to intervene in the situation, Sule described the activities of land grabbers as illegal.

“What is going on is that we have had this problem of land grabbers coming from time to time to disturb us in the college.

“As we are speaking now, they are right inside the college, bulldozing lands, destroying economic trees, destroying those things that we use in the training of our students.”
