Polytechnic alumni demands justice for late student

Federal Polytechnic, Ede

The Osun Branch of the Federal Polytechnic Ede Alumni Association has asked the Osun State Police Command to bring the prime suspect in the killing of Hassan Adedeji, a prospective National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member to justice.

The killing of the prospective Corps member who was a Higher National Diploma graduate of the Department of Banking and Finance has also been condemned by the association.

He was gunned down, together with a commercial motorcyclist by a suspected cultist in the early hours of Thursday, February 10, 2022, at the Agbalemobode area of Ede.

The killings led to days of unrest as students went on a rampage protesting the death, burning tyres and blocking major streets in the ancient town.

Making the call Monday, the chairman of the association, Olorunfemi Olatunji Awoko, who described the incident as barbaric and nauseating, charged the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to the death and killing of the student, to prevent further occurrence of such incidents.

Lamenting that the aftermath of the killings was the unrest which the surrounding communities and Ede was thrown into, Awoko, who was a former student union president of the institution, also called on the police and other security agencies to step in and strengthen the security apparatus in the State to nip criminality in the bud.
