The Nigerian Army have been alleged to have dispersed protesting Nigerian students in Akure, Ondo state, with sporadic shootings.
The students were protesting against the lingering strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities and the inability of Federal Government to get them back to class.
The incident happened on Tuesday as the students converged to resume the second day of the protest along the major highways, including the Benin-Ore Express road.
Yesterday, which was the first day of the students’ protest in Ondo, police and soldiers came to the protest scene, but today, they had come with violence as they started to disperse the students and disrupt other things.
“What happened in Lekki is happening again in Ondo!” One of the protesters had screamed in another video which showed that the instruments of the protests being used by the students had been scattered.
“They’re killing us,” another person said.
There is no record of casualty or injury at the time of filing this report.
