TASUED students protest colleagues’ arrest by soldiers

Students of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED) on Friday faced off with soldiers from Ilese Barracks in Ogun State after the latter allegedly arrested some students for a yet-to-be known reason.

A student, who identified himself as Yusuf Bolarinwa said that many students were arrested by the military late on Thursday night “during a stop-and-search operation” at Conoil filling station close to the school campus.

This resulted in a protest by the students, burning tyres on the road and chanting of solidarity songs.

Earlier before the protest, it was gathered that efforts made by the Students Union President, Rabiu Sodiq, hit a brick wall as he was also arrested.

Mr Sodiq was later released around 2 a.m. on Friday alongside four other students, while others are still in the custody of the military, it was learnt.

On Friday, the students resumed their protest, blocking the Benin-Ore expressway in a face to face encounter with soldiers.
