Students of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Ondo State have done the unusual today as they seized a patrol van belonging to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Reports had it that the SARS operatives were after a car belonging to a suspected ‘Yahoo’ boy in the campus which caused an uproar as the students mobilised themselves against the SARS operatives.
According to one of the students;
“Around 12pm the SARS operatives chased a car into our campus claiming the owner is a yahoo boy, we all trooped out to defend the student who had abandoned his car and ran away while trying to avoid being arrested. So we stood our grounds until they released the car and we also ensured they didn’t go with their van.”
“Their hilux van was kept in the school’s custody and the management has reported the incident to the Commissioner of Police in Akure.”
In a video making rounds online, the students were seen trooping out in their large numbers chanting. Some of the students were seen mounting the open area of the pickup van, while some sat on the window and started driving the van round their campus.
