The Oyo State chapter of Amotekun has revealed why it killed a student identified as Akolade Gbadebo.

Gbadebo was a 400-level student of the Federal College of Education Special (SPED), Oyo (with affiliation to the University of Ibadan).

According to reports, Amotekun said it killed the student because he was an armed robber and a cultist.

Recall that Amotekun was accused of killing the student by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

NANS said he was shot dead after Amotekun corps was invited to clear a barricade by students around Sabo area of Oyo town.

Mayowa Opakunle, chairman of NANS joint campus committee in Oyo said: “I was told that Amotekun corps were called that some students barricaded the road in the area. They came and somebody was said to have fired at them and they returned the fire. The bullet hit the student and he died. The incident happened around 10:30pm last Thursday.”

However, Olayinka Olayanju, Amotekun commandant, claimed it was an armed robber that they killed. He said the deceased was with two other criminals at roadblock mounted around Sabo area of the town.

According to him, his accomplices were arrested and handed over to the police.
