UNIOSUN Shuts Down After Air Force Officers’ Assault On Students
Students and workers at the institution were allegedly beaten by the officers on Tuesday afternoon
A statement signed on behalf of the Acting Registrar said the students are expected back on campus on May 31.
The statement read, “The Vice Chancellor has approved that all students of Ipetu Ijesa Campus of Osun State University should proceed on one week break from today Tuesday May 23, 2017.
“The break is necessitated by the invasion of the campus and brutalisations of our staff and students by the men of the Nigerian Airforce Safety Institute, Ipetu Ijesa".
Officials of the Air Force are yet to make a statement on the incident but reports suggest investigation has begun to ascertain the identity of the officials indicted in the alleged attack on civilians.
Last week, veteran Nigerian comedian, Ali Baba posted a picture of a soldier assaulting a civilian somewhere in Lagos.
