Alimeke, the DPO of of Obantoko Division, led his men to the scene to quell the violence only to be attacked by the rampaging students.
The students reportedly hauled stones at the operatives, which hit the DPO on the head.

“The DPO was hit by stones. The students were throwing stones and other objects at themselves during the fight,” Oyeyemi said, adding that no arrest was made.
“We cannot arrest the students because they are minors. We can only detain and counsel them, after which they will be released.” the PPRO said.
