At least 11 students were injured in the attack while two staff were injured by the violent personnel.
When asked to describe the situation, the Dean of Student Affairs of the University of Osun, Dr. Adebimpe Adigun, she called it “bloody”.
“Six of our students are on bed in the hospital now, five are being treated on the bench now. Two members of staff were also wounded by these military men.“
They did not fire a single shot, but they beat students and injured them. They also beat staff (members) and everybody.
They threatened to shoot me if I moved close to them. I knelt down and begged them, but they did not listen. I called their commandant on the telephone to help talk to his boys. I think he did. because they have left our campus now.
But we are yet to see some of our students who ran inside the bush to escape the attack.”

All efforts to reach the Commandant of the Air Force Institute, Air Commodore Jolasinmi, have proved futile.
