No Student Or Policeman Lost Their Lives During UNIPORT Protest- Police Denies Allegations

The Rivers State Police Command has denied that there were casualties during a protest by students of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT).
The command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Ahmad Muhammad, who disclosed this in an interview on Monday, said that there was no casualty on the part of the police or students during the violent protest by the students.
"No student or policeman lost their lives during the UNIPORT protest. The policeman reported dead had nothing to do with UNIPORT, because the deceased policeman was shot dead by armed robbers in an isolated case. Similarly, no university student was killed to the best of my knowledge.
"All roads earlier blocked by the protesting students have been reopened by the police,” he said.
Muhammad said the police was cooperating with UNIPORT management to ensure that normalcy was restored on campus and host communities.
Earlier, UNIPORT’s Deputy Registrar (Information), Dr Williams Wodi, said that two persons, including a policeman lost their lives in the violent protest.
The spokesman said the policeman was shot dead at a junction along the East West inter-state road, close to the university.
“Also, another person whose identity had not been confirmed was also shot dead on Monday during the protest which lasted for several hours,” Wodi said. (NAN)
