Adamawa State Polytechnic Yola has set ablaze as several students were reported to have been injured as a result of beating with clubs and machete by combined forces of military personnel and police officers on students on Thursday.
It was reported that security forces who chased the students up to their hostels, used cubs and cutlasses on them thereby causing injuries to some students getting ready for examinations.
According to some eyewitnesses, the faceoff between the students started shortly after the management passed a notice banning a popular graduation campus culture signing out.
The angry students then took their celebrations outside the campus which led to gridlocks on the street opposite the campus.
The statement which was copied to Deans of schools, HODs, and Chief Security Officer reads the polytechnic is closed with immediate effect.
Students are to vacate the hostel and school premises immediately. Students that are yet to finish examinations are to write their examinations after Easter break.
