At least three protesting students of Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK) have been shot dead by soldiers on Monday in a bid to disperse them.

It was gathered that the soldiers shot at the students at around 11am in order to open the barricade by students, who were protesting the scarcity of water in and around the institution which had lasted for over one week.

The students had blocked the main road in front of the school gate, which reportedly disrupted traffic for several hours. They chanted “No water, no road”, during the protest.

However, in a bid to disperse the students to allow free flow of traffic, the soldiers fired live bullets. Three students were reportedly killed while some were injured and have been rushed to the hospital.

The students began the protest early Monday morning after about two weeks of water crisis which hit Keffi because the management could not treat and pump water from Mada Water Works along Keff-Akwanga Road.

Meanwhile the management of the university has announced the decision to close down the school, according to Jamil Zakari, spokesman of the university.

    Students no longer have right in this country. It wasn’t a war, just peaceful demonstration. Why soldiers? I wish an action be brought against this BARRELS. So so disappointed. R I P for those gone and quick recovery for those injured.
