The student environment of Ladoke Akintola University has again been faced with another death. This time, cultists clash with students. The peaceful largest student community of the university owned by two states of the ruling party APC, and its leader as the chancellor was faced with turmoil as a student cultist shot dead a member of the leadership organization Man O War.
The crisis, which started in Adenike area of the university, at quarter past seven last night Tuesday 23rd 2016 started as a simple argument between two cultists who started with attacking each other on the ever-busy street. A Man O War member known as Issa Olatilewa admitted in 2013 but was denied by the institution as not a student tried intervening unknown to him that they were cultists fighting each other. Together with his two friends Aimashaun Damola student of URP 200L and Oluwagbeniga Adams AERD 400L who were walking home from school.
On the spot, Issa Olatilewa was shot in the chest and died instantly. He was shot dead by a cultist of a popular confraternity with a pistol gun and swiftly, two other loaded guns were in action and the other student Animashaun was shot immediately in the leg and has since been hospitalized. With one confirmed dead student, another hospitalized, and the churning out of guns, it was also noted in recent times, cultism has been on the rise, and gun running has become a very frequent issue in LAUTECH as this is the sixth student to be shot this year alone.
A call for action is hereby sent to all security agencies and concerned citizens.
