The Cable had reported that when contacted, Okuboye Michael Adesina, spokesman for the institution’s students union government (SUG), confirmed the incident but said he was yet to get full details of what happened.


“ I have not really gotten the full gist about that. The incident happened in the management sciences faculty, which is my faculty. I’m in the accounting department,” he said on Wednesday.


A student of the institution, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the incident was informed by the rising frustration among students.


The student complained of irregularities in the exam arrangement, adding that “lecturers are frustrating our lives.”


“ There are lots of issues with exam timetable. Students don’t know the specific time they have examinations. Everybody is just at alert. Nobody knows when exams will hold because they’re just shifting exams anyhow. 


“ Exams are also clashing. Another problem is the lack of sufficient halls for the exams. I have a friend in physics education department whose exam was originally billed for March 6.


“ It was recently that she heard the exam had been shifted back to February 27 with no particular time disclosed yet. There are some students who get to know they have exams about three hours to kick-off.


“ Students are also having result-related problems. So, there’s a lot of frustration at the moment and the students are only trying to survive.”
