Troops of the Nigerian Army have arrested Sodiq Ridwan, Students Union President (SUP) of Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

Ridwan, a.k.a. Reliable Surz, was arrested on Thursday as he intervened in a matter involving students. The learners are protesting.

Our reporter was informed Thursday night that Ridwan and scores of his colleagues were taken into custody by soldiers attached to Ilese Barracks.

A student said the students were moving in different cars when Army personnel stopped them around Conoil Filling Station.

“They stopped students’ cars, ordered them to step out and were checking their phones. As they stopped more cars, the situation got tense.

“Expectedly, students called the SUP on the phone. Ridwan rushed to the scene but was arrested. Many other students were taken too.”

Another source stated that the students got unruly as they moved in a convoy in continuation of final year examination celebration.

TASUED Vice Chancellor, Prof. Wole Banjo confirmed that the military arrested the students.

“I appeal to students to stay calm. I assure you that we are working to ensure the peaceful resolution of the matter”, the VC said.

Commissioner for Education, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabu, gave a similar assurance: “We are on top of the situation.”

Deputy Director, Army Public Relations 2 Division Ibadan, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, promised to find out details of the incident and revert.

“I am just hearing it from you. I will make calls and provide an update later”, the spokesman said.
