The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has reportedly threatened to shut down the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) over the death of a student outside the university community.
The incident took place at Odenigwe a nearby community to the university.
According to report, an authoritative source in the University said that an exco of NANS spoke to the acting chief security officer (CSO) on phone, threatening that they would come from Abuja to shut down the university over the death of the student.
As NANS threaten to shut down the institution, the national students union body also reportedly point an accusing finger at the security department of the university.
