Reports from the University of Calabar has it that crisis and protest is currently brewing in the University over the just concluded Students Union Government Election which was scheduled to run from 10:00am - 2:00pm, April 24th. 

Thousand of students were left dissatisfied after they were unable to access the voting portal some Minutes after voting commenced. Voting on was suspended and continued by 11:30 before being abruptly stopped by 1:00pm, an hour to the proposed deadline.





 Whilst students were expecting the Electoral commission to formally brief students on the reasons for the challenges faced,  results were announced with the winner of the Presidential election winning by a little more than 400 votes (an election with almost 10,000 declared eligible voters after compulsorily paying fees). 

The SUG President,  Afufu Anthony then led bandits into the Medical Students hostel(the Hall of residence of one of the Presidential candidates) to celebrate the declared winner with the official vehicle of the SUG President. Afufu Anthony broke into the hostel,  smashing windows and bottles before being seized by the Hall authorities pending security intervention to be held responsible for the destruction. 



Men of the surveillance unit arrived the hall of residence and in an attempt to break into the hall, opened fire on medical students. With bullet shells littered around the hostel. 

The SUG President was later released untouched by the Hall authorities.

Two students were arrested during the solidarity procession to the venue were students were chased off after shooting sporadically into the air. The students have been moved to the police station by 7:15pm.

We await further details from correspondence on campus.
