All is not well in the ancient city of Abeokuta right now as a peaceful protest has turned out in a terrible riot.
The peaceful protest led by some student leaders began today, Thursday, August 18, 2016 around 5am; the students took to the street in the cold weather to protest the killing of an 100 level Banking and Finance student after a group of armed men attacked a number of Student resident outside the school premises.
One of the hostel where the armed men operated between yesterday night and this morning was Ajoke Hostel located, opposite the university gate and another was at Isolu area of the community where a student was allegedly raped with lots of gadgets and other precious belongings carted away by the bandits.
The students mounted road blocks along the road leading into the university premise denying students, lecturers and other members of staff in the community from assessing the school.
After being addressed by a lecturer, the students marched down to Camp area of the Odeda Local government area and went ahead to block the Abeokuta – Ibadan expressway.
The arrival of Policemen from the state police command, Eleweran, Obantoko around 11am worsened the situation as the policemen sprayed tear gas in the air to disperse the aggrieved students which further compounded the case as some Asthmatic students went unconscious.
As if that was not enough, another 100 level student who was part of the peaceful protest which suddenly went riotous was also hit by a Police stray bullet which allegedly led to his immediate death.
The students are grossly displeased with the University management’s insensitivity to the rampant serial attacks made on students living outside the school by Armed robbers over the last 8 months, a notice has been sent that Students should vacate the hall of residence as the University embarks on an emergency and compulsory 7-day mid semester break effective from today, August 18, 2016.
This is not a good time for the Vice Chancellor, Olusola Oyewole, who is also the pastor of one of the biggest church in Abeokuta, Divine Heights Bible Church, as he is currently under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission alongside the University’s Bursar, Mr. Moses Ilesanmi over an alleged case of corruption and abuse of office involving the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
Some of his church’s vehicles have been razed by the protesting students.
