Today at the Ajebamidele High court, five Students of Obafemi Awolowo University have been charged to court today after opposing the eviction of students from Moremi hostel as earlier reported by OAU Peeps News Agency here

Speaking earlier with Journalists before the court proceedings, Honourable Omole Ibukun, one of the students suspended last year for participating in a protest, condemned the arrest of the students by the management. According to him, the act is to make silent the agitations of students against ant-students policies.

  "They believe they can proceed with the eviction exercise by keeping those comrades in police detention." he added. 

However, in a release obtained by OAU Peeps News Agency and signed by Babatunde Oyatokun, the Chief security Officer of the university said the  students were arrested for alleged assault and harassment  of the hall warden, Mrs Adeyemo, and other officers during the process of sending students out so as to embark on renovation of hostels.

  "A student named Gbenga Oloniran led a group of students that invaded, harassed and assaulted the hall security assistant and held hostage the warden of Moremi hall." The report read.

Mr. Babatunde further recommended in his release that the university management should look into the antecedents of the aforementioned students so as to make them face students disciplinary committee. He concluded that the case has been referred to the Nigeria Police ,ile-ife for further action of which led the case being referred to the Court of law by the Nigeria Police Force.

The apprehended students are Gbenga Oloruniran, a 400 level students of Geography; Olajide Ademola, a 500 level student of Electrical Electronics; Oyedeji Samson, 300 level student of Pharmacy; Jimoh Oladipupo, 300 level student of Biochemistry; and Adeniji John, 300 level student of Electrical Electronics Engineering.

Meanwhile at the court,protesting students and journalists were denied access to the court room by the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police team led by ASKME MOSES  who was instructed by the Area Commander (AC) of the force.

After listening to both sides in the court proceedings, the judge granted each of the embattled students a bail of five hundred thousand naira only(500,000) with  provision of two sureties who are civil servants level 11 and has their taxes paid up to date.

Speaking with our correspondent, one of the defense counsels of the arraigned students,  Barrister Philip added that the bail application is the only step they can push before further court proceedings.

    Afterwards, students protested outside the court premises against the bail terms by raising placards and chanting songs with the high impossibility of the arraigned students meeting the bail terms.

The case has however been adjourned till April 3,2018  


  1. Hello sir/ma...this is a suggestion or better still, a request from a fresher...I really wish u guys would let us know the needed documents to be printed out from the eportal and submitted...cos many strange documents have been mentioned by different people and many of us don't even know how to go about printing them..i feel they are irrelevant..

    I'll appreciate if u can do this for us

  2. And also , i want to know maybe it is compulsory we print coloured forms of the documents (different from black n white)... Or the school doesn't care abt whether it is coloured or not so far it has all what they want and it is printed from the portal...

    Please sir/ma,I'm counting on u for urgent clarifications...
    Thanks for the help from time past... Well done!
