“The student took a tricycle from the university’s permanent location to the main campus, and suddenly on the road, he was dragged out and stabbed to death,” he added. Mr. Adankala requested the federal government to construct a perimeter fence around the school as well as more dormitories.“This will help significantly reduce the number of students who live off-campus,” he continued.
