Things turned awry for the residents of Solar Close, Mayfair, Ile-ife at about 7:00am today, 22nd November 2016 as alleged members of SSS visited the area and started ransacking, molesting its residents.
According to the residents of the area, most of whom are students of the Obafemi Awolowo University and The Polytechnic, Ile-ife, this would not be the first time such an incident would be occurring. The said officers accused the students of possession of stolen laptops, asking for the provision of receipts for the devices found in most of the rooms raided. However, the students have claimed that this is only a device by the alleged officers to brutalise and extort the students.
In the raid earlier today, the officers were said to have unjustly arrested a number of students, some of who have examinations to write this morning. However, as at the time of compiling this report, some of the students were said to have been released.
This would not be the first allegations of unjust Police brutality and extortion cases, as several other students have also claimed attacks at Bank premises and sometimes even just by walking on the streets. We hereby appeal to the appropriate authorities to look into these rapidly increasing number of cases, maybe once again, the police can be "friends" to students of the Obafemi Awolowo University.
