It has been debunked by the management of Osun State University (UNIOSUN) that the rumor making the round that two students of the institution allegedly shot by policemen on Saturday morning have died in the hospital.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof Labode Popoola, while reacting to the incident in a telephone chat with our correspondent, said the report was a fabricated one which is far from the truth.
Popoola, who condemned in its totality the untrue report, said the two wounded students were still responding to treatment, adding that the institution has taken a bold step towards unraveling the circumstances that led to the unfortunate incident.
The Vice-Chancellor said: “I would like to inform parents, guardians and all stakeholders that it was true some policemen, on Saturday morning, shot and wounded two of our students for yet unclear reasons.
“Immediately we were informed, we acted swiftly by evacuating the victims for safety. They are now receiving the best available care in one of the best hospitals in the state.”
