Suspected TASUED ‘Yahoo’ boys clash with SARS, burn police van
Scores of students of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, yesterday clashed with men of Special Anti Robbery Squad and burnt their operation vehicle.
It was gathered that the confrontation occurred within the university campus when the students prevented the SARS operatives from arresting some students suspected to be engaging in cyber fraud, otherwise known as Yahoo Yahoo.
Some of the eyewitnesses who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the trouble started when the team of SARS pursued some students into the campus.
The operatives, it was gathered, suspected those students of engaging in cyber fraud and attempted to arrest them.
They reportedly pursued the students from Ijebu-Ode to the Ijegun campus where the students entered the school and escaped through the help of their colleagues.
It was further gathered that the students blocked the operatives’ vehicle, forcing the operatives to shoot into the air several times to disperse the students.
The students reportedly resisted their colleagues’ arrest, vandalised the Toyota Camry car used as SARS operational vehicle, and then set it ablaze.
