A young man, simply identified as Tallest, known for allegedly bullying and extorting students of the Federal University of Technology (FUTA), has been handed over to Amotekun operatives in Akure, Ondo State.
According to reports, the suspect who is a member of a syndicate infamous for harassing students outside the school premises met his waterloo, after he was nabbed and given a severe beating on Tuesday night, February 1.
They make sure that we part with our money and phones before they can let us walk freely. We had a protest recently over the matter but apparently, our words fell on deaf ears.
Tallest and his crew took the risk to extort the wrong set of students on Tuesday night and were taught a lesson by the irate victims. While his crew members, namely; K-faction and Quadri took to their heels, Tallest had to bear the brunt of their actions.
He was given an energy drink for strength after receiving a violent lecture and asked to pose for the camera before being handed over to security operatives. A manhunt has been launched for his accomplices,” a source familiar with the incident said.
