The Coordinator of the National Association of Nigerian Students in the South West, Mr. Saheed Afolabi, confirmed the incident, He said he rushed down to Oke Baale area to find out what happened and he was one of those who took the students to the hospital.
Some protesters, who gathered in front of Oke Baale Police Station, attempted to raze down the station but policemen on duty resisted them.
The DSA said she gathered that the policemen, who were not on uniform, were brought to the playing ground in a vehicle with no number plate.
The DSA also stated that residents of the town are the ones protesting the shooting now because they consider the action as barbaric.
It will be recalled that UNIOSUN students had staged a protest at Oke Baale late last year on the grounds that policemen always come to exhort them with trump up charges.

"The Commissioner of Police has directed that a full scale investigation should be conducted into the matter. Anybody who is responsible for the dastardly act will be brought to justice.”
