A FUTA Student has been killed untimely by a wicked Nigerian Police officer identified as Aruna Ayodele. This happened yesterday, Tuesday August 20, 2013. The student of the Federal University of Technology of Akure in Ondo State came to Lagos to make some money because of the ongoing ASUU strike action. The 21-year-old student identified as Kunle popularly called Ifa was shot dead by a Nigerian policeman in Ikorodu area of Lagos for disobeying ban on Okada.
The extra-judicial killing of Kunle has led to a violent riot with people running for their lives. Some angry youths attacked some motorists and burn tyres in major roads connecting to Ikorodu on Tuesday afternoon. Officer Aruna Ayodele who claims Kunle violated Lagos traffic law took the law into his hands when he shot him dead. The deceased who came from a poor family used the opportunity to save enough money for his education pending the end of the ongoing ASUU strike.
Since July, Nigerian higher institutions lecturers have been on strike and negotiations with the Federal Government have deadlocked. A former e-editor for Channels TV who witnessed the whole incident took to his twitter page to reveal what actually happened.
The Okada riders association in the area has called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the police officer, identified as Haruna.
Allegations involving bribery and corruption have been leveled against the officer whose whereabouts are unknown at present.
Sources told Channels Television that Haruna demands sums from N5000 up to N15000 from Okada riders, who he insists are plying illegal routes.
