Ogun Students Demand N5m Compensation From Customs For Slain Colleague

The National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS), has appealed to the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) to pay N5 million as compensation to the family of late Opeyemi Odunsi, a student, who was accidentally killed by an official last week.

The official was said to have been driving an alleged smuggled vehicle at Ihunbo, in Ipokia Local Council of Ogun State, when he knocked down the victim, who died over the incident.

Ogunrombi Gbemileke Emmanuel, National President of the association, who spoke at a press conference in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Wednesday, also asked the NCS to employ a member of the deceased family, to further compensate the loss, as well as pay the hospital bills of three other persons who were also injured in the incident.

Emmanuel noted that their investigation revealed that only one person died as a result of the accident, and not three as speculated on the social media.

He said the demands of the students must be met in two weeks, or the association will be forced to relocate their secretariat to Cusyoms office in protest.

He said: “That only one 20-year-old student died while three others sustained different degrees of injuries as against the rumour peddled around on the social media that three persons died.

“The above demands must be met on or before the next 14 days, else the national secretariat of NAOSS will be relocated to the Idiroko office of the Nigeria Customs Service in a massive protest, which will continue until the listed demands are met.”
