A peaceful protest by students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, turned fatal when soldiers who were brought in to quell the protest, shot and killed at least four students of the institution, wounding seven others.
As a result of the deaths, the university has been closed down indefinitely.
The university’s spokesman, Jamil Zakari confirmed the closure of the school, even though he said he could not “officially confirm” the deaths of the four students.
The peaceful protest action by the students was over water scarcity.
