Public University students protesting the prolonged Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike in Ondo state were dispersed by Military personnel.
The soldiers opened fire to chase away students away from the protesting venue after blocking the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The protesting students who bemoaned the attitude of the federal government on the matter with ASUU had converged on the FUTA North Gate and Roadblock where they blocked the road to register their grievances.
The soldiers who got aggrieved for being blocked and not allowed access to their destination as at when due came out of their vehicle and shot into the air to disperse the protesters before dismantling the road blocks.
Findings show that the soldiers were not from 32 Artilery Brigade in Akure but were on transit to a destination in the state.
According to some of the students who scampered for safety, the soldiers who were coming from the Ilesha end of the road descended on some of the students and destroyed their belongings.
