While demanding justice for the lives lost, the President of the Student Union, Adegbesan Adenola, handed down a seven-day ultimatum to the government to bring the ‘killer-driver’ to justice, just as they demanded immediate investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the accident and the alleged culpability of security agencies around the area.

After all, the students proceeded to the private company whose truck was believed to have wrecked the havoc, forced the gate opened and vandalised some of the company’s property, including vehicles..
