The statement reads in parts:
"Following the recent clash between Students and members of the University Host Community in the early hours of today, particularly, the Iwameje Community which led to the eruption of violence, the University Management hereby announces the closing down of the University,” the university registrar said.

“In the meantime, Parents and Guardians are hereby advised to recall their wards particularly those living in and around Iwameje back home immediately.”

Finding revealed that the clash started on Friday when a 300-level student suspected to be a cultist was allegedly identified and attacked by residents in one of the host communities.
