This isn't the first harassment committed by Indigenes of Akungba-Akoko (Varsity Host Community) to Students of the School; as Daily News Report Metro gathered that some of the Students used to be:
  • beaten,
  • taxed,
  • raped, 
  • rubbed and
  • sexual harassed by some Indigenes of the host Community. Though some are punished, but most of these crimes sometimes go unnoticed or rather unpunished; hence create room for more crimes on the Students.
The Students of Adekunle Ajasin University however appeal to the Government, Management and Stakeholders to intervene in the situation so as to provide a well secured learning environment to all AAUA Students on and off campus of the University Community.

Also, the AAUA Students' Union Government has said justice will be served accordingly. This was made available via a Press release through the Union's General Secretary. It reads partly; " The leadership of AAUA Students' Union have been reliably informed about the murderous and barbaric killing of our innocent student earlier today and we have since swing to action to ensure that the perpetrators are apprehended and justice is served accordingly.

"Information at our disposal, given by some eyewitnesses, reports that Temitayo Ayodeji was stabbed to death in his hostel (off campus) by some indigenes who are already on the run.

"However, the case have reported at Akungba Police. Our position remains that the security services should launch a manhunt immediately to apprehend the perpetrator, and we shall NOT rest until justice is served.

"We call on all students to remain calm and follow the directives of the Students' Union."
