Updated: Riot Hits Futminna Campus, Angry Students Sets School Clinic On Fire, Other Properties Vandalized

Federal University of Techonlogy Minna came to a halt at about 8:35pm following the death of a student nicknamed “Yeye” who slumped at the school team training ground around 5:30pm and was confirmed dead around 8pm. The student got angry blaming the death of the young student on the negligence of duty on the part of the school Clinic staff who they claimed refused to attend to the dying student because they could not present the School ID card of the now dead student.

The school clinic staff refused to attend to the deceased because he was not able to provide his school Id card at that moment, and it was reported that this had always happened several times to other students. Students out of anger burnt down the school clinic and took over the Girls hostel... It seems the protest was hijacked by local miscreants known as Bosso Boys, because many other properties were vandalized.

News reaching us now is that Fire Service, Securities Personnel are now on ground to calm the situation.

DSP Bala Elkalla, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Niger command told NAN in Minna that the rampaging students burned part of the university clinic and destroyed the official car of Dean student affiars.

He said that the Fire service along with police and university security personnel's succeeded in preventing the fire from spreading to other buildings.

"Everything is fully under control. Already the command had since commence investigation. Normal activities have since resume" he said.

A lecturer at the university said the student died before being brought to the clinic.

"He died before coming to the university clinic; it's not that he was not attended to, he died before arrival."

He Quoted "The students have no reason to embark on senseless demonstration; we all come from God and to him we shall return."
But the students related to the lecturer's comment saying why would the nurses be requesting for an ID Card of a dead person if the deceased was really dead at that time?
