A student of Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) was reportedly shot dead by a security officer in the late hours of Tuesday within the premises of the institution.
A student who preferred anonymity told Leadership that the student was killed by the security man very close to Mass Communication department.
He said the killing of the student yet to be identified reportedly threw the institution into a state of confusion with students forming groups and contemplating on what to do next.
Confirming the tragic incident, the polytechnic Public Relations Officer, Lanre Kuye said the student killed was no- longer a student of Laspotech as he has been rusticated before the incident happened.
“This is what happened, the so called student was a rusticated student. He is no longer a student of Laspotech and he has been rusticated for a long time.
“He came with his escort into the school extorting student with guns and knife, so our security pursued them to leave the premises and one of them whose name is Ahmed Amoo was gotten in the leg unfortunately he died in the hospital yesterday morning.”
Meanwhile, Kuye emphasised that the student was no longer their student as he had been rusticated before the incident happened.
He said, “As I speak with you the school is not shut down as I am at the school gate so nothing is happening now and no shut down, the school is calm.”
