A female student of a polytechnic in Ogun State is the latest victim of brutality after a soldier on guard duty in her school gave her the beating of her life.
According to an Entertainment Journalist, Mutiat Alli, Leshi, a student in the Department of Mass Communication, had stood her grounds after the soldier refused to allow her to enter the examination hall if she did not pay a certain amount of money the school had charged all the students over an earlier disturbance.
Leshi had told the soldier that she had her money with her in cash but the soldier insisted she would have to go to a bank and make the payment and she reasoned that before she got to the bank and made the payment, she could miss sitting for her exams.
This argument was said to have infuriated the soldier who descended on her and battered her severely.
This is what Alli wrote on her Instagram page:
"Aggrieved students of Abraham Adesanya Polytechnic, Ijebu-Igbo, have cried foul over a fellow colleague from the department of Mass Communication, identified as Leshi Folashade, who was bartered by the school security (soldier), having stood her ground that she will be writing her exams since she has her cash with her as damage payment mandated on all students.
According to a close colleague who claimed anonymity, it all started when the Cisco office in the institution got burnt thereby affecting the continuation of exams as students were mandated to make a contribution of 5,000 each via POS.
Leshi Folashade who could not make the payment as at when due, came in with her cash to the exam premises but was denied entry into school premises as the soldiers insisted that the payment was late.
Shade's refusal to leave the school entrance gate warranted the security men to rough-handle her, denying over 100 final students who could not make payment.
With several injuries inflicted on her, the soldiers refused to let her go. Insiders however disclosed that having informed the Rector of the institution of the situation on ground, the Rector felt no remorse about it.
Folasade was later driven to 'Topan' police station by DSA (Miss Jokotagba) where she was detained for no cause.
The aggrieved students equally noted that Prof. Jumoke bIlesanmi Awoderu (the Rector), is not doing anything on the case as Folashade has equally been denied access to her lawyer.
At about 10pm today, Jumoke was released but we students of the school insisted that we want the government to intervene and the matter taken to court."
