In the early hours of Monday, January 27, 2014, two buses with tinted glasses carrying plate numbers FL 282 LND and AZ 886 MKD, led by the Chairperson, ASUU AAUA Branch, rode forcefully into the campus of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, refusing to submit themselves to routine security checks.
In line with the requirements of their job, the University security officials monitored them to the car park in front of the ASUU Secretariat to seek explanation to the unbecoming act of the occupants of the buses.
The occupants of the buses took the action of the security officials in bad faith, had a shouting match with them and later rough-handled the uniformed University security officials, some of whom sustained injuries. Two of the beaten security operatives are now receiving treatment in a hospital
A couple of hours later, the AAUA ASUU Chairperson led other individuals to gather and incite an unsuspecting group of students and lured them into believing that the security officials beat up their lecturers. The ASUU Chairperson and those in his company rode out of the campus thereafter.
Members of the University community are urged not to allow themselves to be used to undertake any action that can disrupt the peace of the campus and the on-going academic activities, as the issues are being addressed by Management.
