THEWILL gathered that the choas is connected to N3.8 million Students’ Union backlog fund released by the University management on Thursday, 31st of August, 2017.

The excos resolved to embark on some projects with the backlog fund which include; refurbishment of union library, construction of SUB relaxation centre and construction of staircase around Alumni-Archi axis.

The Vice President was not pleased with the decision because we denied her the funds for fresher’s package. We told her to wait for the disbursement of of 2016/17 session but she got angry and wanted to leave the meeting.

While she proceeded to the door to exit the meeting, Lamba engaged her but she raised alarm of harassment. Emerald slapped Lamba first before he retaliated.

Later, she opened the fridge of the president but could not find any bottle except a malt bottle on the shelf which she broke to attack Lamba.

When both party engaged in another round of physical combat, Lamba headbutted the Vice President and both sustained injuries.
