Students of University of Jos, yesterday, took to the streets to protest the stabbing of two female mates at Naraguta Hall by some youths around the area.
The protest march which took the students around Bauchi and Zaria Roads led to the blockage of the entrances to the school.
The female students were said to have been attacked on Monday by youths of Angwan Rogo, who were reportedly returning from a nearby burial ground.
The visibly angry students chanted war songs while others also shouted slogans demanding an end to the persistent attacks on innocent students whenever there was a crisis in the city.
The Registrar of the University, Mr Danjuma Damdam, who confirmed the protests, described the attack as unfortunate.
He explained that one of the stabbed students was in a critical condition at the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH).
``It is true that two female students were stabbed by some unknown persons on Monday, but one of them was treated in our clinic and discharged.
Damdam said, however, that security operatives had taken control of the situation.
