Malam Lamara Garba, the varsity’s secretary of information and publication, issued the warning in a statement on Sunday.

He said that Kamaluddeen Moshood, the deceased, who was a student of the varsity’s department of accounting, died on Saturday at the National Orthopedic Hospital Dala, following injuries he sustained during the accident.

Garba stated that Moshood was hit by a fast-moving vehicle outside the university on June 8 at about 10:00 pm.

He said the vice-chancellor had directed the dean of students affairs to visit the scene and take all necessary action.

“The driver of the vehicle was apprehended while the victim was rushed to the hospital under the supervision of the University Director of Health Services for prompt medical attention,” the information secretary said.

“While at the hospital, preliminary investigations revealed that Moshood had a severe leg injury and needed to have his leg amputated to save his life.

“It was in the process of stabilizing his health that he died. The University did everything possible to save the life of Moshood, so any student(s) caught protesting will be decisively dealt with.

“All serious-minded students are advised to face their studies and prepare for the forthcoming second-semester examination, which will begin soon.”

Garba also conveyed BUK’s condolences to the deceased’s family, associates, and members of the university community.

According to him, the university has requested that the federal ministry of works urgently construct a pedestrian bridge near the main gate of the new campus for students to cross over the highway.
