“The attack is not only wicked but babaric, in a society with law and order, such brazen lawlessness must not be tolerated, that is why we want to join all voices of reason to demand that justice must be done in this regard.

“We are aware of the report of the arrest of one of the attackers, we nonetheless demand the arrest of all the perpetrators of the babric attack, they must all be made to face justice so as to serve as deterrent to others planning on doing same thing.

“However, from our preliminary investigation following the arrest of one of the culprits, we want to unequivocally say that the Deputy Governor of Osun State, Prince Kola Adewusi, has no hand in the attack whatsoever contrary to news making the rounds. It is erroneous to suggest that the person of Prince Adewusi the Osun Deputy Governor who’s trackrecord as a fine gentle man, humble, amiable and accessible politician precede him can be a party to such barbaric conduct. It also stand logic on its head to assume that the Deputy Governor will oppose protest over school fees increment in a Federal University not under the purview of the state to the point of unleashing thugs on students leaders.

“The victims of the attack were clearly erroneously made to believe in the heat of the matter that Prince Adewusi sanctioned the attack and the statement that followed was made in error, this has been made clear after the arrest of one of the attackers. The Osun State Government to the appluae of many have demonstrated high level of interest in the welfare of students till date. If tomorrow the state Government is no longer concern about the students interest, we will be the first to make a loud noise about it.

“Finally, we equally want to reiterate that the management of Obafemi Awolowo University should listen to the voice of reason and reverse the school fees increment without further delay. “
