ABEOKUTA - The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako has said that the assassination accusation by a former Student of the institution of wanting to kill him was a premeditated action against the Vice-Chancellor.

The said student, Ifemosu Michael Adewale, a 200-Level of the institution who was expelled for gross misconduct after facing the school's disciplinary committee accused the  Vice-Chancellor of plotting to assassinate him. 

Ifemosu in an online video interview circulated on social media alleged the VC of wanting to kill him for challenging the institution authority over alleged mismanagement of the transportation fund.

But Salako who spoke at a Press Conference in Abeokuta on Friday said he found the assassination attempt allegedly instigated by the accuser as traumatic as a father. 

Professor Salako maintained that, Ifemosu maybe acting a script bigger than him in view of the recent happenings in the school premises, stressing that the allegation may be a prelude to a sinister intention by Ifemosu and his sponsors to unleash attack on him.

The Vice-Chancellor further explained that, the claimed assassination attempt from Ifemosu has been reported as a robbery incident which took place at Apakila, camp area of Abeokuta on 17th March, 2020.

He therefore stressed that, the law enforcement agencies have been duly informed to investigate the assassination threat. 

"This press conference is predicated on a publication and a video interview which went viral on various social media on Tuesday March 17, 2020 in which Ifemosu Michael Adewale claimed that Professor Felix Kolawole Salako sent hired assassins to kill him. 

"The University and the Vice Chancellor have had enough. He also stated that before the incidence, he had received a lot of threatening calls through private lines aimed at silencing him. 

"The general public and all our stakeholders may wish to note that emerging facts indicate that what Mr. Ifemosu referred to as an assassination attempt orchestrated by Prof. Salako a Vice Chancellor has also been reported as a robbery incident which took place in Apakila Camp area of Abeokuta on March 17, 2020 at about 1:23am. 

"Ifemosu even claimed in his publication that he was not around but relied on hearsay to make this grevious allegation against Prof. Felix Kolawole Salako.

"However, we have noted that Ifemosu may be acting a script bigger than him, in view of recent happenings on our campus. The Vice-Chancellor wishes to state that his allegation may be a prelude to a sinister action to be unleashed on the Vice Chancellor by him and his cohorts. We take cognizance of the recent campaign for funding by his group."
