In a dramatic twist, the Kaduna State University Management reacting to shut down reports which were earlier published in some online news outlets on Monday debunked the shut down reports.

In a statement which was signed by the Public Relations Officer of the school, Adamu Nuhu Bargo urged the students, staff and the general public to ignore the report.

The statement said: “The Management of Kaduna State University wishes to inform Staff, Students and the general public to ignore the news being spread in the social media space regarding shutting down of the University.

“It is fake news in its entirety as well as the handiwork of mischief makers. Academic activities are in progress.

“Management urge everyone to carry on with their legitimate endeavours as it is partnering with security agencies in the State to ensure the safety of all and sundry.

Though the statement which seems to be an ‘afterthought’ was silent why students were not allowed entry for their early morning lecture by the Security agents.

CAPITAL POST’s earlier report is reproduced on the insistence that the University was earlier shut.
