He added that he was with the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, who confirmed that the police officers involved had been arrested and detained with the assurance that that the matter will be investigated appropriately.
The Vice Chancellor stated that the injured students received appropriate medical attention and has recuperated. Prof. Popoola also stated that the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titi-Laoye Tomori also visited the students while receiving treatment at the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital, Osogbo.

It was also noted that the members of the immediate student Community were so embittered with the way and manner that the policemen had been operating within the environment, particularly towards the students of the University. Before this particular incident, the students’ representatives had reported to the authorities the issue of policemen unlawfully invading their hostels, arresting them, collecting their belongings and harassing them. This shows how policemen mistreat the students without being challenged or questioned.
The management of Osun State University appealed to Osun State Commissioner of Police to always ensure adequate monitoring of the way the Nigeria Police officers operate within the environment, particularly towards the students of the University.
