A student of Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) simply known as ‘Tallest’ was caught and beaten to a pulp on Tuesday evening by an angry mob for alleged stealing.
It was gathered that the alleged student has been terrorizing students of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) by bullying and stripping fellow students of their valuables.
Tallest was said to have been nabbed by students somewhere around ‘South Gate’ where he was beaten mercilessly by angry students.
Students went ahead to buy him energy drink (Monster) as they continued to beat him before he was handed over to the Amotekun Corps.

Last week Students of the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) protested harassment and extortion by thugs and cultists at the south gate entrance of the school.
They blocked roads leading to their school, causing gridlock, which extended to the Akure-Ilesha highway.
The protesters became more annoyed when a motorist, in a bid to manoeuvre through a blockade set up by the students, hit two of them.
The victims were rushed to hospital, while the motorist escaped.
One of the students, Ayo Bami, said the thugs beat up the students’ union leader on Sunday evening after chasing some students into the school premises.

Another student, who simply identified himself as Emmanuel, said the protest was to express their grievances about the pains they went through in the hands of the hoodlums.
FUTA spokesman Adebanjo Adegbenro said it was not a protest but a sensitisation march against actions of some persons living close to the south gate, who bullied some of the students.
“Sometimes, they also rob them. It is a sensitisation march and also to let the security know the behaviour of these individuals.
“We have done all we can to ensure students’ security. We are also in constant engagement with the community to ensure those things do not fester. Our duty is to make report. It is the police that will make arrest and prosecute.”
