Students of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo state are protesting the death of one of their colleagues, Folarera Ademola, an ND1 student of Science Laboratory Technology who was killed by an officer of the Amotekun corps.

Speaking on the development, the Students’ Union President, Olorunda Oluwafemi, confirmed that the boy was shot on the 27th of June by an officer of the Amotekun in front of his parent’s house.

Oluwafemi added that the deceased suffered the gunshot wounds for 10 days before being taken to the federal medical center Owo, where he gave up the ghost yesterday.

The students are expected to March from the school gate through the Palace of Olowo before taking the protest to Amotekun’s office to further press home their anger.

They are also giving the state government a 24-hour ultimatum to hand over the said officer to the Nigerian police force for proper action, take charge of the deceased’s Burial, and compensate the family.
