According to multiple reports, police men are said to be currently beating and molesting students of Adekunle Ajasin University in Akungba township in Ondo State, after the institution was shut down following protest by students over the decision of the management to enforce ‘no payment of tuition, no test/no examination’ policy.
It is alleged that that the policemen are acting on the order of the University management, led by Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun. Some students who were found hanging around the town, were forced to lay on the ground and arrested by the police as can be seen in the pictures.
Some students were allegedly injured by the police in the course of arrest as others reportedly escaped being arrested by hiding in the roof.
The massive protest erupted on Wednesday as the students resisted the school authorities’ decision to enforce the policy from last Tuesday when 100 level and 200 level students commenced their test.
