Students of the Lagos State University (LASU) have gathered to protest the death of Yusuf Nurudeen, a student leader shot dead by gunmen on Wednesday.

The student leader, also known as ‘Omomewa’, was killed around LASU U-turn, Iba Road.

According to a press statement by the LASU Students Union, the killers of Nurudeen are suspected armed robbers.

Although the student leader graduated in 2019, he was held back to face the school’s Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC) over unlawful possession of university documents, among others.

Students converge on the school gate to protest the death of the student leader.

“On the 18th of August, 2021, Nurudeen (Omomeewa) and a staffer of Lagos State University known as MAJEK were robbed at gunpoint around 10pm, close to U-turn in LASU,” the Students Union statement read in part.

“It was gathered that both of them were shot at. Mr Majek sustained an injury and was hospitalised at the school clinic.

“When the union was informed this evening, it proceeded to the school clinic to get some facts from Majek and he confirmed that his bag was collected, including his phone.

“Later, the union checked all the hospitals around, including police stations, and it was there we were informed that Nurudeen was dead and that his body was at Mainland Hospital.”

After rallying around the school premises for few hours, the students moved to Mainland Hospital to pick Nurudeen’s corpse.

The deceased was a student rights activist and founder of the Educational Rights Campaign in LASU.  He studied Educational Management at the university until his graduation in 2019.
