The authorities of the Federal University of Agriculture, (FUNAAB), Abeokuta, Ogun State, have allayed fears over the state of health of Taiwo Abikoye, who was injured in a protest embarked on by students of the institution, last Thursday.
This was disclosed by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mrs Emi Alawode, in an interview with Sunday Tribune.
She stated that there was no iota of truth in the rumour making the rounds that the injured student was dead.
Alawode said that the student was responding to treatment at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State.
The PRO urged the media to cross-check facts before going to the press.
Sunday Tribune recalled that Abisoye was hit by a cartridge of teargas during the protest and was first taken to the Federal Medical Centre (FCM), Abeokuta, before being transferred to UCH.
No fewer than four vehicles were set ablaze by the students who were protesting against insecurity situation in hostels within the university host communities.
