OAU STUDENTS REACT TO THE FORCEFUL EVICTION AND ARREST OF COLLEAGUES.
By Olufemi Alfred .O.

     Students of Obafemi Awolowo University have reacted to the eviction of students in the female hostels and the arrest of some of the comrades, who came to the aid of the evicted students, as reported by OAU KILONSHELE  earlier today.

    Our correspondent confirmed the lock of the three out of the Four entrances to Awolowo hall of residence by students residing there.

    A final year student, who pleaded to be anonymous, told OAU KILONSHELE that the last entrance was kept opened only for students.

"If the management try to come to Awolowo hall, we will show them the stuff we made of." He said.

    As at the time of filing this report, the Five students arrested are in detainment at Moore police station, Ile-ife. All attempts to secure their release by their colleagues proved abortive.

 
    Anon, Omole Ibukun, one of the students suspended last year for participanting in a protest, condemned the arrest of the students by the management. According to him, the act is to make silent the agitations of students against ant-students policies.

  "They believe they can proceed with the eviction exercise by keeping those comrades in police detention."
  However, in a report signed by Babatunde Oyatokun, the Chief security Officer of the university, the students were arrested for alleged assault and harassment  of the hall warden, Mrs Adeyemo, and other officers during the process of sending students out.

  "A student named Gbenga Oloniran led a group of students that invaded, harassed and assaulted the hall security assistant and held hostage the warden of Moremi hall." The report read.

    The list of other  students apprehended includes; Oyedeji Samson, a part 3 student of Pharmacy; Olajide Adedamola, Jimoh Oladipupo and Adeniji John.

    An eyewitness account by a student, Kewuyemi Ope, revealed that the allegations against the students are false. He released audio and video recordings of the speech made by the primal alleged, Gbenga Oloniran.

    "None of the arrested students moved closer to the officers not to talk of harrassing or assaulting any of them." He stated.
