Mayhem broken out in the early hours of Wednesday at Ekosodin after the youth chairman, Ekosodin Community was shot during the night hours by unknown persons.
The incidence infuriated some persons from the community, who went to the University management to register their anger. As a result, the Ekosodin back gate, the only entrance point from the community into the school was put on lock down for a few hours.
The gate which is one of the major entrance points into the school was blocked with stacks of furniture and other heavy objects to prevent access through it. As a result, several students were stranded, as the nearest possible alternative into school was the Main Gate, which means taking a long and tiring journey round the school.
