Olabisi Onabanjo University Students Protest Over School Fees.

Commercial activities were Friday paralysed in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, western Nigeria, as policemen from the State
Command teargassed protesting students from Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, to prevent the students from disrupting the presentation of buses to all the Students Union Government of all the 13 tertiary institutions in the state today.
The students, who came out in their thousands, were dispersed with teargas while shots were fired at the State Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, also known as Iwe Iroyin, Oke-Ilewo, where many properties of journalists were destroyed.
Our correspondent and his colleagues who escaped unhurt, reports that the police stormed the NUJ secretariat, shooting sporadically while teargas cannisters shot by the police dispersed the students and many people including motorists.
At the Kuto roundabout, where a line was drawn on the road signifying a battle line between the police and the students, the police were seen dancing to various war songs and warning the students not to cross the line in their own interest.
The popular Kuto market was partially deserted as traders ran for their lives when the policemen shot teargas to disperse them from causing gridlock on the road.
Motorists plying Isabo, Kuto, Nawair ud deen, Oke Mosan and Oke-Ilewo went through hell before crossing the routes as students and the police barricaded the roads.
The Students Union leaders led by their President, Olusegun Ifade, a.k.a. Socialist, met this morning with the State Police Commissioner, Ikemefuna Okoye, and the Director of the State Security Services at the SSS office in Abeokuta.

He further revealed that the two security bosses immediately left for the governor’s office at Oke Mosan to brief him on the matter.
As at the time of filing this report, the governor had been briefed about the development and had directed that all the executive members of the Students Union of Government, SUG, Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, Ago Iwoye, be brought to his office for a peace talk.
