The Vice Chancellor of Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK), Professor Shamsudeen O. O. Amali, OFR, FSONTA, F.Inst.GLT, on behalf of the University Community, hereby expresses deep regrets over the recent happenings that led to the death of two students on the federal highway.

The closure of the university by the Senate was taken in the best interest of the students to ensure their safety. He further regrets that the protest on the federal highway against shortage of water supply in Keffi town embarked upon by few students staying off-campus was hijacked by some hoodlums.
