Although the cause of their invasion is not yet known. No fewer than 11 students were injured in the attack while two workers were also reportedly injured as the military men reportedly used gun butts, cutlass and sticks freely on anyone they came across including Dr.M.O Abanikanda.
The Dean, Student Affairs of UNIOSUN, Dr. Adebimpe Adigun, when contacted said the situation was bloody.
She said, “Six of our students are on bed in the hospital now, five were being treated on the bench now. Two members of staff were also wounded by these military men.
“They did not fire a single shot but they beat students and injured them, they also beat staff and everybody. They threatened to shoot me if I moved close to them. I knelt down and begged them but they did not listen. I called their commandant on the telephone to help talk to his boys. I think he did that because they have left our campus now.
“Presently, we are yet to see some of our students, who ran inside the bush.
