Umaru-Tanko-Al-Makura1The Nasarawa State Government will settle hospital bills of students receiving treatment for injuries sustained during the Feb. 25 students protest in the state, Dep.-Gov. Dameshi Luka has said.

Luka said this on Friday in Keffi when he paid a visit, on behalf of Gov. Tanko Al-Makura, to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) to see the students.

Information Nigeria recalls that students of Nasarawa State University in Keffi had staged a protest over water scarcity.

This had degenerated into a riot which led to the death of two students, with some others sustaining various degrees of injuries.

The deputy governor, while sympathising with the injured students, said the incident was unfortunate and prayed God to grant the injured students quick recovery.

He however advised the students to always channel their problems through appropriate channels.

“You should also embrace dialogue, rather than protests,” Luka said.

Meanwhile, all the injured students brought for treatment had been discharged from the hospital, with the exception of one Abdulmajid Ofoku. This was disclosed by Dr. Ayuba Nagawa, the Chairman, Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Nasarawa state chapter who briefed the deputy governor on the students’ situation.
