Student’s death raises more disaster as hoodlums set OPC leader’s house on fire
More disaster hit Ede town on Sunday following the killing of one of the town’s polytechnic students last week.
In connection to the student’s death, some hoodlums reportedly burnt down the home of one of the leaders of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in the town.
Eyewitnesses said that the house was attacked around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday by unknown hoodlums, but its owner, Olayiwola Wakil Adesiyan, escaped being shot.
According to the eyewitnesses, nothing was rescued from the building unburnt, except Adesiyan and members, who have fled to an unknown location.
The Ede B Division of the Osun State Police Command, when contacted, confirmed that they were aware of the attack, but added that it was working on how to nab the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Recall that the violence in Ede started on Thursday when a prospective corps member and HND graduate of the Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Hassan Adedeji and a commercial motorcyclist were gunned down by unknown gunmen suspected to be cultists.
As a result, students of the Polytechnic, on Thursday, took to the streets and violently protested.
