Few months ago also, Students of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic in Owo (RUGIPO) in Ondo State called for the disbandment of SARS Outfit, following the death of their final year Accounting colleague, Seun Ogunmola, in a road crash.
The late Seun and his classmate, Deborah Iyanuoluwa, allegedly had the accident while being pursued by SARS operatives in Owo town. They sustained multiple injuries after the Toyota Matrix saloon car they were driving crashed near Owo Technical College. They were said to have been mistaken for Internet fraudsters by the SARS operatives.
Seun died on Sunday at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owo, 11 days after the accident. CAMPUSLIFE gathered that the student gave up the ghost few hours after his leg was operated upon.
According to eyewitnesses, the students lost control of the car. After the accident, the officers reportedly abandoned them and fled the scene. The victims were rushed to the FMC by passersby. It was learnt that the car belonged to the president of the off-campus hostel where the late Seun stayed.
CAMPUSLIFE could not confirm Deborah’s condition as at press time. A close friend, who did not want her name in print, said she had been transferred to a private hospital in her Okitipupa hometown in Ondo State on her parents’ instructions after being confirmed to have been pregnant.
