Unconfined reports say armed assailants have seized university of Jos student communities in the Plateau State capital.

In a reported renewed violence on Sunday after the killing of over 12 in Rukuba road, Jos, the armed men blocked major roads around Village and Naraguta hostels in Jos North, shooting and killing residents and commuters.

So far, some three students have been reportedly shot in Rusau village near University of Jos Permanent site while one identified as Mr. Paul Adoyi, a 200L Pharmacy student of the university has been declared missing.

The university student body had earlier issued a statement calling students to remain indoors while the situation was being controlled.

The Police Public Relations Officer of Plateau State had also told MKB that police detachments had been sent to quell the clashes.

However, more distress calls have continued to pour in from the affected areas.

The inability of the securities to timely calm the situation is believed to be caused by the deployment of large troops to guard politicians at ongoing Primary elections of the PDP and APC.

Civil authorities have not commented on the situation but Gov. Simon Lalong of the state at the APC primaries holding at Crest Hotel, Jos assured delegates that they would be attached with securities to their various destinations after the exercise.
