The National Association of University Students (NAUS) Campus Monitoring Committee (CMC) in Oyo State has declared a shutdown of academic activities at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) in Ogbomoso, following the killing of a student by a policeman on Monday.

According to eyewitness, the policeman was called to settle a misunderstanding between two individuals on campus but instead shot into the air, killing one student and injuring two others.

The incident sparked outrage and protests among students, who blocked the school gates demanding justice for the victims.

In a statement, Comrade Michael Oladipupo, Executive Chairman of NAUS CMC, condemned the “appalling and senseless murder” of the student and called for a comprehensive reform of law enforcement agencies in Nigeria.

“This tragic incident not only represents a gross violation of human rights but also underscores the urgent need for comprehensive reform within law enforcement agencies across Nigeria.

“In this extensive discussion, we aim to delve into the distressing details of the incident, explore its wider implications, and articulate our stance on seeking justice and instigating systemic change”.

The union suspended all classes, adding that it will continue to protest until justice is served.
