Kaduna State University, KASU, has suspended students who physically assaulted cadets of the Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA, during the matriculation ceremony on October 12.
The university’s spokesman, Adamu Bargo, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Kaduna, said the students beat up the cadets and damaged their car for making advances at a student’s female friend.
WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that KASU students beat up four NDA cadets, who are in their second year, during the matriculation ceremony and destroyed their vehicle over girlfriend.
“The incident happened at the convocation ground where the cadets saw a female student hanging out with her male friend and one of them tried to collect her phone number, but she refused.
“When the cadets persisted, the male friend intervened and one of the cadets slapped him.
“The assaulted varsity student drew the attention of other students who descended on the cadets with stones and sticks.
“The cadets tried to escape in their Toyota (Matrix) car, but the students locked the school gates and pelted the vehicle with broken pieces of interlock bricks.
“One of the cadets who couldn’t get into the car in good time was severely beaten,’’ he explained.
Bargo stated that the incident was being investigated and further disciplinary actions would be meted to forestall recurrence.
“Management will not tolerate any act of indiscipline as the university is a place where character and learning are taught,’’ he added.
