Gunmen Shoot UNILAG Student In The Head





 A University of Lagos student was reportedly shot in the head yesterday by unidentified gunmen at the King Jaja Hall area of the university on Monday. Fortunately, the student who was identified as Sapara, a final year student of Philosophy, had his face covered in blood instead of being dead after the bullet scraped the side of his head.

He was subsequently taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, and official report have it that he is in a stable condition. The incident had however led to chaos as students were seen running in different directions after the gunshot was heard.

Punch reports that according to eyewitnesses, they saw a car speed off after the shooting, noting that the perpetrators might have carried out the attack from there.



The Dean of Students’ Affairs of the University, Prof. Olukayode Amund, has also confirmed that Sapara was indeed shot and currently recuperating at LUTH, stating that investigations had begun to unravel the circumstances surrounding the attack, after which requisite actions would be taken.

When asked whether the attack was carried out by cultists, Amund noted that though it was not yet confirmed, it was a likely possibility. According to him, only cultists are known to carry out operations of this nature.

And although normal day-to-day activities went on at the university on Tuesday as students went about writing their ongoing examinations, some are weary that reprisal actions could take place.
In January, unconfirmed reports had it that a student was axed at the New Hall axis of the campus.
Responding to this, Amund said the university was working with the police to find useful leads.
