ABEOKUTA – A student of the Tai Solarin University of Education, TASUED , Jagun, Ijebu-Ode, identified as Olawale Musiliu Lasisi, was allegedly shot dead by policemen said to be hunting for some suspected cult members.
Two other students were also said to have been shot in the process.
The incident was said to have infuriated students of the institution who consequently protested at the police Area Command in Igbeba, Ijebu-Ode.
The protesters barricaded the Ijebu-Ode–Ore Expressway with bonfires, causing traffic build up that which lasted for several hours.
The management of TASUED thereafter shut down the institution for one week and set up a panel to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the violence.
