Trouble reportedly started on Sunday, April 21, 2013 when some students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, Ogun State protested that Odunlade Adekola (a popular yoruba movie star) and his crew; Fausat Balogun, Ebun Oloyede known as Olaiya Igwe and some others, should put-off a ‘noisy’ generator because it was disturbing their reading for an exam the next day.
In a report by Nigerianfilms, Odun told the students whose building was next to where Odun and his crew were using for a movie shoot, to dare talk again and get a bitter reward for that. He also allegedly threatened to deal with anyone who violates his order.
Not intimidated by Odun’s order, the students insisted the generator must be put-off because it was constituting a nuisance to them. Odun allegedly ordered some hefty men to beat life out of the ‘defiant’ students.
Even a civil defence officer, who reportedly tried to restore peace, was not left out of Odun’s ‘largesse’ as he was beaten black and blue by Odun.
At about 10pm on Sunday, some police from Adigbe Police Station allegedly arrested the students after Odun had begged them to teach the students a lesson for dis-obeying the ‘orders of a popular movie star’.
They were later released after landlords association of the area intervened.
As we now hear, Odun and the students have been summoned for a meeting by the landlords body on Saturday.
Efforts to reach Adekola has been abortive at the time of this report.
