Man caught with explosives at Awo Hall in OAU [PHOTOS]


A mad man identified as Adedayo Rasaki Daniel,
was on Sunday allegedly caught with explosive
substances around one of the hostels at the
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.
He was caught with explosive materials including
petrol, wires, stove, and newspapers at about
1pm by the students of the OAU.
According to reports, he was caught with what
looked like a mixture of petrol with an unidentified
chemical around the Awo Hall of the school.
Confirming the incident, the Public Relations
Officer of the university, Mr. Biodun Olarewaju,
said “What happened was that our security unit
apprehended somebody, whose movement was
suspicious. While they searched him, a stove, old
newspapers copies, and some liquid mixture
suspected to be kerosene, petrol or so were found
on him.
“From our observation, the young guy may not be
ok. We don’t want to leave anything to chances
because of the security challenges in the country
and that is why we handed him over to the
police. We want the police to use their expertise
to check if the guy is mentally ok or not. I wish
to put it on record that our security officers are
ever vigilant, and we don’t want any havoc here
and machinery has been put in place to safeguard
lives and property.”
