Violence had rocked the Ago Iwoye campus of the Olabisi Onabanjo University on Monday.
As early as 7.30 am, students had stormed the gates of the institution which they succeeded in locking. Only to reportedly have two students of the�university shot dead with several others wounded following an ongoing protest about against some of the �anti-students policy” of the school’s management.
According to�StreetJournal, some of the students revealed that one of the new policies stipulates that any student who does not pay school fees on time would not be allowed into the exam hall, which could mean an extra year for some.�
Policemen were however on the scene not long after and arrests were reportedly made. Students claimed policemen opened fire on them and in�minutes, the story was trending on Twitter, with the pictures above.
However, the police have denied that�they shot students dead.
Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, the spokesman of the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police Force. Adejobi said:
They went violent this morning and some of our men were deployed to disperse them. The operation was led by a Deputy Commissioner and no live bullet was used so the issue of killing does not arise at all.”
They are just using the issue of killing to seek public sympathy. We don’t kill. That was the same thing they said when there was a crisis in Tai Solarin University of Education in Omu Ijebu, they said policemen killed four students. No one saw the bodies. That is what they always say to win public sympathy”.
When he was told by Street Journal’s reporter that pictures of one of those feared dead in the protest were already on the internet, Adejobi who disclosed that he had seen the picture said �we know the way students try to get sympathy. Let them produce the corpse in the picture. They should bring the corpse to the police.”
