Cross River University of Technology Shut Over Alleged Student’s Death

13:47 Jun 7 2021 Cross River State

A student of Cross River University of Technology, Calabar Campus identified as Ford Moses Nkasi, was killed by assailants suspected to be phone snatchers.

The Tide gathered that the incident happened near the school’s administrative building, few metres away from the security post at about 8pm last Thursday.

According to reports, the student of Visual Art Department witnessed a three-man gang robbing a female student of her smart phone.

He was said to have chased after the robbers who successfully made away with the phone in a bid to retrieve it but they stabbed him multiple times with a dagger and he bled to death

Sources, who spoke to The Tide, said the student died 20 minutes later while being rushed to the hospital by his colleagues.
Two of the suspects were caught by the CRUTECH security while the other escaped and consequent upon upheavals that followed, the school’s authorities had closed down the institution to avoid further damages by the students.
No date has yet been fixed for its resumption.

The Tide also gathered that the Cross River State government has closed down the university of Cross River State indefinitely.
The Permanent Secretary, Special Duties, Governor’s Office, Dr A.A Mboto in a public announcement said the closure followed an alleged plan by hoodlums to carry out destruction on the university.

According to the statement “this is to inform the general public that the Cross River State Government is aware of the ongoing plan by hoodlums and some students who are non-indigenes of the state in the university of Cross River State (UNICROSS) to carry out destruction in the university. The institution has been closed for now so no student is expected to be in the campus. Any student that stays back is doing so at his or her own risk”.
“Cross Riverians are hereby, urged to stand up and defend the institution from being destroyed by these non-indigenes as was the case during #EndSars protest”, he said.
