The management of an Ibadan-based private university, Lead City University, Ibadan has  handed over four of its students and a parent to the Oyo State Police Command for alleged possession of dangerous weapons during the protest that greeted the row between the institution and the National Universities Commission (NUC).

According to the school bulletin, the recent unrest in the institution was masterminded by some students who were on probation.
It also accused an unnamed parent of coming to the school’s last parents forum with a double-barrelled gun hidden in his car.

The bulletin further read, “The university management is aware of the activities of some students who are on probation list before now to cause disaffection among other serious students in the university.

“It is also disheartening to discover that a parent whose ward is on probation came to the last parents forum with a double barrel gun hidden in his jeep and he was subsequently arrested and handed over to the police”.

While appealing to other authentic students of the institution to face their studies and desist from all manners of instigation, the authorities of the school said the staff and students of the institution should always wear identification cards.

Angry students had on Monday protested against the crisis between the management and the NUC. They allegedly destroyed some valuable things in the school. The melee left some students injured while trying to run away.
