Lagos State University students on Tuesday protested the killing of a student union activist, Nurudeen Alowonle, popularly known as Omomeewa, who was allegedly murdered last Thursday at the school gate.
The protest took place yesterday and was led by the Students’ Union President, Abdul Basit Ashade, to the spot where Omomeewa was murdered.
During the protest they shutdown vehicular activities in front of the school gate.
The Students Union Government (SUG) and the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), called on the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, to investigate the course of their colleague’s death saying that his killing might have been assassinated.
The students Union President while addressing the students, said: “Omomewa is a very dear brother to us and we will ensure that we get to the root of this matter and the state meets up to our demands so as to avoid this type of occurrence.
“That is why we have come today to pay an homage to this place that the incident happened. It is so disheartening to us that this happened.”
The students, however, said there were indications that the school management may have been involved in the course of his death last Thursday.
The NANS President, Ogunsaya Rasheed, said the body is still with the police, while Omomewa’s parents are yet to accept his death.
