Two students injured

Two students were severely injured in the incident and were quickly rushed to the institution's nearest health centre. Still, on getting there, the injury proved to be more critical than what the medical facilities present at the site could tend to.

They were then referred to a better-equipped medical institution near the Campus. However, the students eventually had to be referred to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital.

The Vice-Chancellor, as well as the Dean of Students' Affairs, visited the students at the hospital.

The management has had the afflicted lecture theatre sealed and barricaded.

The Vice-Chancellor appealed to the student community to remain calm as the situation had been contained.
