The Management enjoined the student population to continue to live in peace and harmony and comply scrupulously with all the rules and regulations of the University.

It is quite appalling to discover that the Man ‘O’ War personnel involved in this devillish act are equally students of the same institution. What a pity? Nigerians against Nigerians simply because of uniform. Now Nigerian students against one of their kind. Some will blame it on education; saying that our security personnel lacks adequate education. But, here we are, all the Man ‘O’ War personnel are students of a tertiary institution yet they fail to discharge their duties professionally. Lets continue to say no to brutality.
