The incident, which took place on Friday, left several others with various degrees of injuries, according to a source within the university.

The source revealed that the two female students were suffocated in the crowd and were later declared dead by healthcare workers. The National President of the Nasarawa State Students Association, Yunusa Baduku, confirmed the incident, stating that many students had been rushed to nearby hospitals for medical attention.
