There was pandemonium in Osun State as students of the state university took over the streets of Osogbo, the capital in a violent protest against the alleged ritual killing of their colleague.

The irate students had on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 burnt down a house close to where the deceased body was discovered, and continued their demonstration on Wednesday morning.

Dressed in black, the obviously angry students marched from their school campus at Oke Baale, to the Palace of the Ataoja of Osogbo, and made a stop at the Olaiya roundabout where a bonfire was made.

The students who came out in thousands were seen destroying everything they came across, chasing people with sticks and iron materials.

Channels TV’s correspondent noted that only one patrol vehicle of the police was seen moving with the protesting students, as they made their way to the state Secretariat.

Commercial and vehicular activities in the town have been grounded and there is a significant amount of tension in the air.
