Presidency Convoy ‘shoots at’ OAU students During Protest [Photos]

Presidency convoy ‘shoots at’ protesting OAU students and was held hostage by the student.  Here’s what one of the leaders of the protesting students said: “The security details shot at us. We have held them hostage. We will not let him go.”

You will recall that students of the OAU took to streets to protest the increment in their school fees after the management of the school made this public in a press release.

Read the full details of the shooting and OAU Students’ protest as reported by PremiumTimes:

Government car shoot oau students

Hundreds of protesting students of the Obafemi Awolowo University have held a presidential convoy hostage in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

The convoy led by a Toyota bullet proof SUV with ‘Presidency’ inscription and registration number, FG902-B02, tried to drive through the students who were protesting an increase in fees by the university management.


Security details attached to the convoy then shot, perhaps to scare the protesters, with two of the students reportedly sustaining injuries.

“The security details shot at us. We have held them hostage. We will not let him go.” one of the leaders of the protest told PREMIUM TIMES on phone.

The students were protesting, on the Ife Expressroad, the increase in their school fees by the university management when the 6-vehicle convoy arrived.

The university management increased the fees from about N17,000 to over N100,000.

“We demand a total reversal to statusquo,” the student leader said.

It is not yet clear who the occupants of the presidential convoy are as some students said the main occupant is a relative to President Goodluck Jonathan.
