Law enforcement disperses protesting students at Bauchi university following the killing of a fellow student.

The Yelwa Campus of Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, is in chaos as police use tear gas to disperse students protesting the murder of their fellow student, Joseph Agabaidu, who was fatally stabbed by assailants attempting to steal his mobile phone.

Initially holding a peaceful protest within the school premises, students were halted by security personnel and denied permission to proceed outside.

The ensuing confrontation resulted in the police firing tear gas, causing students and bystanders to cough profusely and use makeshift items to cover their noses.

Despite attempts to pacify the students, they forcefully closed the gate, obstructing vehicular and human movement within the campus for over three hours. Academic activities at both Yelwa and Gubi campuses were paralyzed, with students refusing to allow entry or exit. Additionally, students complained about the arrest and handcuffing of one of their peers by the police.

The situation led to the deployment of multiple police vehicles to maintain order, while students expressed their discontent through solidarity songs.
