Meanwhile, students of the institution took to the streets to protest deaths of some students as a result of accidents in recent times.

Angry students are said to have blocked the entrance of Campus 3 main gate, as they demanded justice for their deceased colleagues.

Oasis Magazine (OM) gathered that it took the persuasion of the Vice Chancellor, Professor Andy Egwunyenga for the protesting students to be pacified.

Egwunyenga also promised to put machineries in place to tackle the cause of such accidents in the community.
