  • Description

    Fifty thousand people joined the procession Saturday at the funeral of Ibadan student Kunle Adepeju, a victim of riot police shooting on Monday at the University of Ibadan.

    The student mourners were joined by many older people, including market women, trade unionists, and church dignitaries.

    The size of the mourning procession indicates the poor state of relations between the authorities, especially the police, and students both at Ibadan and at Lagos.

    Police first opened fire on about 3000 student demonstrators when they went on a rampage at Ibadan University after four days of protests against catering deficiencies in one of the halls of residence. Two students were killed.
