The crisis in Jos, the capital of Plateau State, took a new dimension on Sunday when gunmen reportedly raided the University of Jos (UNIJOS). The violence was said to have begun from Tina area of Jos North Local Government Area and later spread to other parts.
Terna Tyopev, spokesman of the state police command, confirmed the renewed attack. The gunmen were said to have made their way into UNIJOS, shooting haphazardly, causing students to scamper for safety.
The police spokesman said no death was reported but promised to make casualty figures known, if any.
However, unconfirmed reports indicated that lives were lost in the attacks, including two students of UNIJOS.
