Hundreds of students of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ogun State, yesterday went on the rampage to protest the death of their female colleague, who was crushed by a truck on the Benin-Ore-Lagos Expressway.

The victim, identified as Kofoworola Tobiat Kuku, was said to have been knocked down by a truck driver, who escaped from the scene. It was learnt that Kuku was on her way to school on a commercial motorcycle when the sad incident occurred about 12:15p.m. Miffed by the accident, TASUED students mobilised themselves and barricaded the ever-busy expressway with logs and made bon fires on the highway.
