TASUED Protest: Anxiety Over SUG President Health – There was anxiety over the health of the President of the Students Union Government of Tai Solarin University of Education, TASUED, Ijagun, Comrade Sunday Ekeyokpa, who was reportedly hit with gun butt by one of the security men during last week’s students protest.
Vanguard reliably gathered that the SUG President is in a critical condition and had been rushed to his family house in Abeokuta for urgent attention.
The students and men of Nigerian Army code named: OP MESA, clashed last Tuesday during a protest against the school management which allegedly did not allow some of them to write the first semester examinations.
Sunday was said to have suffered head injury after he was hit with a gun butt by one of the soldiers during the protest.
One of the students leaders in the state, Hamed Falola confirmed the health condition of the students president, saying he had contacted some government officials over the matter.
He said: “Yes, Sunday is not okay, his health condition is now questionable because of his attack by the OP MESA in the school last week.
“We were told by some medical experts that he should be attended to by some psychiatric doctors because of how he has been behaving and that was why we brought him down to his family members at Abiola Way in Abeokuta.
“We are appealing to the state government and philanthropists in the state to help save the life of our President.”
Another students leader who pleaded anonymity said: “Some of us tried all we could but his action shows that he is not mentally fit. His responses to issues are distorted. So we rushed him to his family house in Abeokuta.” (Vanguard)
