Adamawa State polytechnic, Rector Professor Ibrahim Umar has given a vivid account of how outgoing students of the institution destroyed a 500 capacity multipurpose lecture theatre, Students’ Union Government building and a male hostel during an unprovoked riot.

The rector in a nervous state described the incident to newsmen that the riot was ignited by revelries and celebration by outgoing students.

” Outgoing students usually celebrate what they call signing out. They usually go round the campus in celebration. Some departments started this on Monday after finishing their second semester exam.

” After their exams, science laboratory technology students went to the football pitch to celebrate, but the security men reported to me that they were going to create problems because they were taking bottles of beer and smoking while celebrating”.

” The student’s affairs division issued a circular that there should be no more signing out to avoid any complications in the school.

“But this morning when we came-in, students from the crime department disobeyed and started celebrating the so called signing out immediately security personnel and SUG President admonished them to stop but they resulted in throwing stones on the security personals.

“They destroyed the 500 capacity lecture theater, completely burned down the SUG building and dismantled the block E part of the boys hostel,” Umar said.
