The state police public relations officer, Olugbenga Fadeyi, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust in Ibadan on Monday, said the DPO in the area had sent the signal to the state command.
“It is true. The DPO told me that the incident happened when the driver of the truck was trying to avoid killing some sheep and rammed into the students on the Okada.
