YabaTech Management Explain Shooting Incident On Campus

By Ayo Ajayi

The Yaba College of Technology, Yaba, Lagos has confirmed that there was a shooting incident on its campus on Wednesday, however, the victim and the culprit are not students of the institution.

A statement signed and made available to EDUTORIAL by the institution’s Head of Public Relations, Joe Ejiofor, noted that the culprit was immediately arrested and handed over to the police at Sabo Police Station.

Ejiofor stated that “True, a shooting incident took place in the college yesterday. But please, let it be known that the victim who was shot is not a student of the College. The good news however is that the person who did the shooting was arrested immediately and taken to Sabo Police Station.

“This week was declared as student week which has attracted a large influx of people to the campus. Some miscreants who obviously are not students of the college and who probably have scores to settle among themselves perhaps used the opportunity of the large influx to settle their previous scores.”

He also explained that the story making the round that five students of the College were killed in September was not true.

“It is also not true that five students were killed in September as reported by some news media.

“As responsible and responsive management, our main task is to ensure the safety of staff and students on campus, and the college manager will not relent on that,” he promised.
