According to NAN, the VC was speaking during her first press briefing at the senate building on Friday.

She complained of how students were injured or killed amid prior attacks and intimidation staff were experiencing.

“A number of students were injured or killed in the process, in addition to a series of attacks and intimidations launched against the staff of the institution, especially the examination officers,” the VC said.

“A student was killed by this wicked group shortly after he finished his examination. I don’t know if he was a cult member, but one disturbing thing is that they still went ahead to cut him into pieces”

“They also attacked one of our lecturers. Though he survived, he is still in critical condition at the hospital.

“This became a challenge to the management, in addition to low morale among security personnel necessitated by the high level of indiscipline in the security unit, inadequate operatives, and unavailability of functional vehicles.”

Tenuche said she has devised means of handling the situation and purchased two vehicles for the security unit and the chief security coordinator.

She said sporting activities will be encouraged and supported by the students participating in the Nigerian University Games Association (NUGA).

According to the VC, the Theatre Art department has been mandated to bring up weekly play production to keep students busy.
