Vibrant student activist at LASU, Yusuf Nurudeen, aasassinated just minutes after appearing before his University’s probe panel

A student activist at the Lagos State University, Yusuf Nurudeen, has been killed by unknown gunmen in front of the school gate hours after appearing before the school's disciplinary committee over alleged admission racketeering and unlawful possession of university documents. (Read More Here).

Campus Trackers gathered that Yusuf died on Wednesday, Aug 18, after being shot. Similarly, a staff-activist in the school who had openly expressed support for Nurudeen was also shot in the back and said to be in a coma.

It was learnt that the disciplinary panel had been postponing the sitting for unknown reasons since January 2020. Before his assassination, Nurudeen, a leader in the Education Rights Campaign (ERC)— platform of activists organised on Nigerian campuses to campaign for free education— described the probe as an attempt to frame him for being an outspoken opposition to the management of the school.

He was also said to have got married six months before his death, leaving behind a three-month-old child.
