Updates from Today’s Fuel Hike Protest by Lautech Students
LAUTECH SUG committee, friends and well wishers took to the streets and major roads to push their boundaries further, to surpass their records of LAUTECH Students Block ILORIN – OYO Express Road (PICTURES) and LAUTECH STUDENTS BLOCK ILORIN – OYO ROAD, AGAIN!!! the past two days, causing total traffic grid lock.
Today the Group of students began the total traffic halt from GENERAL and AROJE(in the opposite direction)
As planned, the traffic standstill began and everything was going as planned, when out of nowhere a WHITE VEHICLE (SMALL CAR) drove roughly into the midst of the protesting students, 5 passengers identified as members of National Union of Road Transport Workers, alighted and without any form of communication they brought out shiny, neatly sharpened machetes, and struck the students that they were able to strike.
Majority of the protesters scampered for safety. Unfortunately Ex-SUG president Bakare Solace was one of the five students struck, however no death casualty was recorded but the students sustained painful injuries.
The Scene wanted to turn violent but was swiftly brought under control.
After the sour event the students regrouped at the STUDENT UNION Building where crucial meeting was held to Determine the next course of action.
But the action did not end there, after the meeting LAUTECH STUDENTS SEIZE 10 VEHICLES and creating another road block for atleast an Hour, this time within university metropolis, before business was dissolved for the day at 2pm.
