But hardly had the defection completed than some hoodlums, brandishing dangerous weapons, descended on the area, attacked some of the decampees and destroyed everything in sight property in view.
As at the time of filling this report,our reporter reliably gathered that one of the defectors was yesterday night murdered in his house by rampaging thugs, who reportedly shot him at close range and carted away all his private belongings.
The deceased, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, was said to be a student of the Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin.
Already, the deceased body has been deposited at the mortuary. Other decampees have reportedly fled their houses for fear of being equally attacked.
Meanwhile, a detachment of dare-devil police have been deployed to the scene to prevent escalation.
