Not too long after the management of the University of Ibadan shut down the institution and suspended her Students’ Union leaders in spite of the students’ protest on Democracy’s Day, the Oyo state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adekunle Odude has also issued an arrest warrant for the President of UI Students’ Union himself.
The arrest warrant for Ojo Aderemi, the union leader came after the leakage of an audio recording of the phone conversation between the latter and the Oyo CP on the planned protest.
On the phone conversation, Mr. Adekunle Odude allegedly said: “If you (students) come out of the University of Ibadan tomorrow (Tuesday 30th of May), I’ll deal with anybody that does that. If you want to protest, protest within your University.”
“Go and warn your students,” he said to the Student Leader. If they like their lives, none of should come out of that school. If any student comes out tomorrow in protest and blocks any road, I’ll deal with them.”
