Students of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, on Friday blocked the Ife-Ibadan Expressway and state roads in Ife, in protest against the management of the institution over the death of their colleague, Adeshina Aishat.
The protest started after Aisha died at the school medical center on Thursday, September 30, 2021.
According to the protesters, Aisha died due to negligence from the medical personnel at the clinic. The deceased was writing her final examination before the unfortunate events.
The students were seen with different placards with the inscriptions such as "Justice for Aisha", "OAU is Killing Us", and many more.
Also, anti-government protests erupted in Abuja and Lagos State in the early hours of today. Protesters are demanding good governance and accountability from the government.
The angry youths blocked major highways in Abuja before they were dispersed by the police.
The protests coincided with the country's 61st Independence Day celebration.
