Men of the Nigerian Army have allegedly stormed the scene where students were protesting in Akure, Ondo State on Tuesday.
The students had gone out for a second-day protest in the state over the lingering strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Videos obtained by our correspondent had shown soldiers marching in their numbers with their guns, alongside a van being driven after them. Sporadic gunshots were heard as they moved while some of the students ran in panic.
The students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba, in Akure, had, alongside, counterparts from neighbouring states, barricaded major highways, including the Benin-Ore Express road while they protested.
It was gathered that the police and soldiers came to the protest scene, but today, they had come with violence as they started to disperse the students and disrupt other things.
“What happened in Lekki is happening again in Ondo!” One of the protesters had screamed in another video which showed that the instruments of the protests being used by the students had been scattered.
It was also gathered that the ASUU strike, which began on February 14, has entered 92 days.
