1 Killed In Bida Poly Students/Drivers Clash



One person have been confirmed dead and thirteen persons arrested in a clash  between students of the Federal Polytechnic, Bida and commercial vehicle drivers in the town at the weekend.

LEADERSHIP gathered that the fight ensued between three students of the polytechnic and a commercial vehicle driver who conveyed the students from Minna and dropped them at the park instead of the polytechnic road junction as agreed from Minna.

Consequently, argument started, then physical  assault  making one of  the students to  have bruises and a driver injured in the process.

It was however gathered that, apparently peeved by the development   the students went back and mobilised more of their colleagues  from the campus against the drivers, burning  seven motorcycles and causing  free for all fight.

An eye witness account revealed that some youth within the town who learnt about the purported burning of motor cycles by the students mobilised and attacked students staying in off campus opposite the school leading to the death of a student.

Confirming this to LEADERSHIP, the Police Public Relations  Officer  (PPRO) ,Niger State Command, Abubakar Inna said that thirteen  persons have been arrested while one of the students died.
