The survivor of the fatal clash of ethnic agitators, said;  "I had just left my center after writing the JAMB test and when I got to the road at Mile 12, I saw people raising their hands, and I also did same, just to be able to get home," he started.

 
He said a gun bullet had suddenly pierced him from behind and he next saw his intestine pouring out of his stomach at his front. "I used my hands to hold my intestine from falling down and I was pushing them back inside," he continued.

 
He said he saw a police station and hastened his steps there for protection and help, but was bounced out by the police officers who saw him dying with a delicate bullet-opening on his stomach. "They said this is a police station and not a hospital. They shouted at me to go out," he said as he narrated.
 
 
A medical enthusiast, Bolaji who scored 250 in the JAMB test said he is studying with utmost dream to become a medical Doctor.

"I have a strong will to live my dream as a medical Doctor and I have assured my parents that I shall survive this. I will not die," he declared.
