studentkilledpoliceThe pic  (sorry about it’s gory nature btw) is that of a young man named Gbenga Osanipin, who was shot dead by police during a peaceful protest staged in Ikole, Ekiti State, over the relocation of the site of a yet to be established Federal University (one of the 9 new universities the federal is planning to establish) from Ikole Ekiti to Oye Ekiti.

The Governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi, had announced Ikole-Ekiti as the site for the new Fed. University, only for the federal government to later announce Oye-Ekiti as the location, prompting a protest from some students and indigenes of the State.

The incident happened last week thursday and four other people were said to have been killed during the protest.

Sad. May their souls RIP
