One UniJos student killed, another missing in Jos clashes-varsity


Contrary to reports making the rounds that several students of the University of Jos were killed in the recent clashes that erupted in Jos, Plateau State capital, the University authorities have comfirmed only one student was killed.

The university’s Principal Assistant Registrar, Information and Publications, Mr Abdullahi Abdullahi,  issued a statement, saying that one student was  missing while two others were injured.

Abdullahi said that the clarification became necessary following series of unverified information being circulated, especially on the social media about the casualty figures.

“It is claimed that seven students of the University have been killed as a result of the skirmishes.

“Management wishes to clarify that after a rigorous search was carried out, one student is still missing while one student was confirmed dead and others were reported injured.

“The corpse of the deceased student has since been deposited in a mortuary.

“One of the injured students is still receiving treatment in the hospital while the other has been discharged.

“Out of respect for the families of the affected students, the university authorities have decided not to disclose the identities of the dead and the injured but would do so in due course,” it added.

The university management, however, assured that it was working with the security agencies and the Plateau Government to ensure that the lives and property of members of the university community,  especially students were adequately protected.

“The management wishes to appreciate the government, security agencies as well as members of the public who have shown great concern about the plight of the university during this difficult period.

He advised of the university community, especially staff and students, to exercise caution and comply with all security directives during this period.
