As believers, we submit to the will of God on this development. We condole with the families of the deceased and the entire university community. We urge them to stay strong in this very trying moment," AbdulRazaq said in a statement by his spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye.

"The Governor has directed relevant authorities in the state to quickly take over the medical care of the injured."
