Suspended Vice Chancellor, Professor Haruna Kaita Mauled By Students
The embattled Vice Chancellor of Federal University Dutsin-Ma, Professor Haruna Kaita, who is currently under suspension by its Governing Council for various corruption allegations got what he did not bargain for what he got when he returned to the University campus on Friday, June 2, 2017.
Apparently spurred by a purported court judgment restraining the Council from proceeding with its investigations of allegations against him, Professor Kaita along with a convoy of strange people believed to be hired thugs forced their way into the campus with the sole purpose of returning him (Kaita) to his seat.
Several witnesses to the event reported that his entry was received by protests from students who confronted the convoy and barricaded the Senate Building in order to prevent him from gaining entry.
But in a show of force, Professor Kaita and his thugs initially overpowered the students, broke keys and door locks and eventually made his way into the Vice Chancellor’s Office.
Before this point, the Ag Vice Chancellor, Professor Armayau Bichi and his Registrar had been advised to leave their offices for safe location in order to prevent potential bloody clash.
Reports further has it that the students later regrouped and in greater number moved into the area and succeeded in chasing Professor Kaita and his men out of the campus.
As the convoy hurriedly made its way out shouts of ‘we don’t want Kaita’ rented the air by students who started throwing stones and pellets at the fast escaping professor.
