This is to draw your attention to the increased extortion and harassment of students by men of the Nigeria Police force, most especially students travelling along Igboora to Lanlate, Ibadan, Abeokuta and Igboora axis.
It is unfortunate that students continue experiencing various degree of harassment and extortion in the hands of Police officers despite several appeals that have been made by the students’ body to the Police Command to curb this ill treatment of students’ travelers.
