Students of Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic, Ijebu Igbo, have cried out for help after their colleague was brutally beaten up, battered and detained by soldiers.
Aggrieved students of Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic, Ijebu Igbo has cried foul of a fellow colleague from the Department of Mass Communication identified as Leshi Folashade who was bartered by the school security (soldier) having stood her ground that she will be writing her exams since she has her cash payment with her as damage payment mandated on all students.
According to a close colleague who claimed anonymity, trouble started when the Cisco office in the institution got burnt thereby affecting the continuation of exams as students were mandated to make a contribution of 5000 each via POS. Lesi Folashade who could not make the payment as at when due came in with her cash to the exam premises but was denied entry into school premises as the soldiers insisted that the payment was late.
Shade’s refusal to leave the school entrance gate warranted the security men to rough-handle her; denying over 100 final year students who could not make payment the opportunity to write exams.
With several injuries inflicted on her, the soldiers refused to let her go.
It was gathered that after informing the rector of the institution of the situation on ground what had happened, nothing came out of it.
Folasade was later driven to ‘Topan’ police station by DSA (Miss Jokotagba) where she was detained for no cause.
The aggrieved students equally noted that Prof. Jumoke BIlesanmi Awoderu (rector) has done nothing on the case and has denied Folashade access to her lawyer. The students have insisted that the government must come to the aid of their colleague whose right was violated before more harm come her way.
