On Monday, the students went on rampage protesting the death of the student who had just reported back to school, torching some buildings in the school.
Speaking to a local daily, Samuel Ayoma, a student leader, said that the guards clobbered the student and abandoned him at the Central Park, near the main campus.
“The guards claim the student was a goon, yet we know him as a fellow comrade,” said Mr Ayoma.
The torched buildings were abandoned hostels commonly known as prefabs.
