14 UNILAG student activists remanded in prison for protesting rustication of blind student

The police on Saturday arraigned 14 student activists of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), including Adeyeye Olorunfemi before a Mobile Court in Oshodi, Lagos.

Adeyeye and the others were arrested on campus on Friday while returning from the office of the Dean of Student Affairs (DSA).

They protested against the rustication of a visually-impaired student, Lawrence Success and Ochuba Polycarp.

Polycarp was said to have been rusticated despite graduating.

The student activists were detained overnight at the State Criminal Investigations Department Panti in the Yaba area of Lagos.

They were charged before a Mobile Court in the Oshodi for “breach of public peace.”

Presiding magistrate, Mr. Peter Nwaka ordered the students remanded in Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison until 6 April.
