To this end, all students (Stream A and any other full-time student still on any of the University’s campuses) are hereby directed to vacate the premises with immediate effect to ensure a proper, holistic and unimpeded thorough investigation, please

It is worthy of note that armed security personnel have been quickly deployed for patrol, surveillance and security purposes.
