Students and soldiers clash at Nasarawa State University, Keffi

Students of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, this morning clashed with soldiers after they protested over not having water for many days on campus. Soldiers were called into the school to restore sanity but things went crazy. They clashed with the students and I hear they may have killed one of them.

The soldiers allegedly went to the off campus hostels to harrass and beat up students. The school has been closed down indefinitely as a result of this. The Governor of Nasarawa state, Tanko Almakura, have since advised all students of the school to leave the school premises with immidiate effect till further notice.

That's my Alma matter; so sad this is happening now I guess the new vice chancellor is not performing well because throughout my stay in the school from 2005 to 2009 when Prof. Adamu Baike was VC there wasn't any kinda Riot. And to the Soldiers; that's how they behave especially in Keffi Nasarawa State, they are power crazy.

Unarmed students, soldiers wit guns n bullets incredible

Could the campus security not handle this issue? Calling the army was uncalled for and just stupid! The army personnel don't have regard for human lives, I doubt they know their job description! They are meant to protect the citizens not bully, torture and kill us! Everything here is done backwards! I mean, it's absurd calling the army! Kmt

Why are Nigerian security operatives so trigger happy when it comes to protest? Protests are tools used to drive home a message any where in the world. Well, I remember back in University, touts and miscreants take over protest sometimes and makes it go sour so sometimes you can't entirely blame the security operatives. Nigeria needs help, see what just basic amenities is causing? Too bad!

they should have used police rather than soldiers we all know soldiers re striking force the police would ve calmed the situation nd restore sanity in the campus.

Linda, the students were protesting non availability of water BEFORE the soldiers were called in. Trust Nigeria soldiers 3students were killed, just as they killed over 30 students in the earlier 90s over protest in Zaria. Let school authorities/ our leaders kill all the FUTURE leaders while they want to rot on their seats. God will punish them.

Now this is extreme, why use violence when you could solve the problem peacefully (try to fix the water issue). The school management should all be sacked, this is abominable.

If it is not safe for students to even go to school, how can one expect to develop a country?

Soldiers brough into a school premises over a protest!!!! This is the height of insanity, a show of foolishness by a supposed institution of knowledge with supposed intellectuals, ineptitude by academics and a total disregard for for due process....aren't anti-riot policemen trained for such situations. Its still pathetic that we live in a country where there is utmost disregard for the rule of law and inexplicable abuse of power by the government and its security agents.......an end must be put to this........#SOLIDARITY

The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. Credit goes to wordquote.com Follow us on twitter at: #mywordquote

KMT solders?! what da hell! Bastards all of them! unarmed students vs armed battle trained solders? what kind of leadership do we have in this country? animals in human form...from the Governor to the person idiot that invited the solders to the wizard army general that allowed the solders to leave the cantonment should all be sanctioned! Oga Jonathan are you seeing this? Berra not close those eyes of yours & form blindness as you normally do cos if you do, this will send a signal that will endanger the lives of all the students in this country!

Funny enough its not just water even light, I went to spend a week with a friend in the school, and I ran out in two days time, the heat is unbearable, only one borehole with an unending que. The school is cool but the management and government of that school is fucked, very local state, the only trademark that developes the state is the less cared for... 9ja

Are u for shizzy? Police wulda left a lot more dead! #accidental discharge! Am sure students capitalised on d clash to kill eachother. Soldiers don't need to shoot to restrain students.

Tugbaski said...

The funny story about this whole story is that the whole problem started off-campus. No water supply from the public mains, so the University do try to help out by sending tankers of water to Areas like Ungwanlambu,High-Court etc. it seems these off campus students and non-students that protested believed it was the responsibility of the school to take care off their water problem outside the school premise. the issue was really meant for the governor, water bored manager and their various landlords.
