No life lost in Offa Poly Students’ protest — Police

The Kwara Police Command on Friday said that the protest embarked upon by the Students of the Federal Polytechnic, Offa, did not claim any live as speculated in some quarters.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Samuel Okansanmi, said this when he spoke in llorin, the state capital.

He said although a protest erupted on Friday when a lorry running away from police arrest knocked down two students of the institution on motorbike.

Mr. Okansanmi described as unfounded, the rumour that the two students died instantly.

The Police PRO said no casualty was recorded during the protest, adding that the two students only sustained minor injuries and are currently receiving treatment in a hospital in Offa.

He said normalcy had since returned to Offa with the usual social and economic activities in top gear.
