FUTY shut down as Christian, Muslim students clash



There is an ongoing pandemonium at the Federal University of Technology, Yola, FUTY over claim by Muslims students that, a fellow student made a blasphemous remark against Prophet Muhammed.

According to the students who are currently on the run following the unrest at the campus, few weeks to the Student Union Government, SUG election, there was a threat by a student on a Facebook page warning the school authority should take action against the alleged claim of blasphemy or the Muslim students would take all necessary action to stop academic activities in the institution.

However, other students who spoke to DAILY POST at the time of the incident said, the riot was not as a result of the alleged claim of blasphemy, but as a result of the election of the Student’s Union Government, where one Haliru Amos emerged the Union President, as against the expectation of the seeming majority Muslims students.

” The Fellowship of the Muslim Students, wanted one Hamza to be the SUG president, and they promised to give him all the backing. The Fellowship of Christian Students also brought in Haliru Amos, and gave him all the backing. Along the line ,the Muslims students could not reach an agreement, which made Haliru to have a smooth run to emerge the SUG President.

“This is what annoyed them and informed the unrest this evening. I believe some of the lecturers are backing them. The student who issued out a threat earlier was not called to order or arrested by the school authority. So, they always feel they can do anything and get away with,” a student told DAILY POST.

Our Correspondent also reportsthat, the students who are trooping out of the school said, they were asked to leave the school premises as at the time of this report.
