According to a statement issued by the Acting Registrar of the institution, Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa,the institution has informed Government about this unfortunate incident .
The statement noted that the institution is working with Government to prevent a reoccurrence.
Meanwhile, as a temporary measure, Management has directed that the main gate should be closed with immediate effect.

1. Sports Center gate
2. Guest House gate
3. Eastern gate
4. The two small gates (i.e the one leading to the Works & Services Department and the one leading to the Student Union building).
