July 10 OAU Massacre; What Actually Happened

Image
The Obafemi Awolowo University massacre was a series of shootings and murders which took place against students of Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria on Saturday, July 10, 1999. It resulted in the deaths of five people and injuring of eleven, all of them students at OAU.
It was perpetrated by an organized death squad of 40 members of the Black Axe Confraternity branch at the university. They invaded the Awolowo Hall of the university at around 4:30 A.M., clad in black trousers and black T-shirts, their faces hidden by masks; they carried and made use of shotguns and hatchets against students.

What led to the massacre
An account of what led to the massacre is given by Prof. Roger Makanjuola's book “Water Must Flow Uphill (Adventures in University Administration)”. Prof. Roger Makanjuola, following the massacre, became Vice Chairman of the university and took an active role in both investigating and punishing those from the university involved in the murders.
