The atmosphere in Obafemi Awolowo University campus became tensed in the late hours of yesterday, Saturday, 29 July, 2017 when report of an attempted abduction of the Angola Hall Chairman, Osungbade Akeem was thwarted by conscious students in the hall around 8:45pm.
The bandits who were identified as students of the University were led by a popular student regarded as Chaw Lee, a final year student of Dramatic Arts. They were said to have stormed the executive room of Angola Hall to rough handle the chairman and cart him away with a car parked outside the Hall.
The event which occurred in the odd hours of the day further raised alarm on the security of students on campus.
After the arrest of two of the suspected kidnappers, the others whisked away and have since then fled the university campus. After long interrogation they were paraded around Angola and Mozambique Halls after which they were transferred to Students Union Building for further interrogation.
As at the time of filing this report, efforts are being made to apprehend the others. While talking to students, the Students' Union President promised the students that his administration would uphold the tenets of the union and will not condone any cult like activities on the campus.
