After a purported black spot raid by Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency agents outside the school grounds, several irate students at Kwara State University, Malete, assaulted the divisional police station in the town on Thursday.
Friday’s development prompted a response from the state police command, which was represented by spokesperson DSP Ejire Adeyemi Toun. Reports stated that the gatherings, which started at around 1600 hours, were centered around complaints about recent raids by NDLEA agents on black spots around the school’s grounds.

“Off-campus students demonstrated their disapproval by organizing a march from different sections of the town to Okoru Junction, which is near the Malete Police Division. They carried banners with diverse messages, like “Say No to NDLEA.”

“During their journey, they came across a white Toyota Hilux car bearing the license plate Lagos AGL 574 HZ, which was driven by Inspector Ibrahim Ali and three other armed Ila-orangun police officers who were on their way to Malete for work.

They were misidentified as narcotics law enforcement agents’ operators. After that, the students pursued them to the Malete Divisional Police Headquarters, where they started to pelt the police station with stones.

Unfortunately, this resulted in some damage to the station’s rooftop and the windscreens of the cars that were parked there. To break up the rowdy crowd and stop more damage to the police station, the policemen fired tear gas canisters.

Furthermore, PC Fayemi Kehinde, a police officer, suffered minor injuries as a result of the stones.
