If not for the intervention of security agents, we would be reporting a bloody religious clash in Adamawa State Polytechnic, Yola.

Several students were injured in an early morning clash between two groups of students over a supposedly stolen phone.

A student was accused of stealing a phone and was lynched but his friends decided to retaliate.

This led to a fracas that almost turned into a religious clash.

When contacted, the Information Officer of the Polytechnic, Mr Albert Mathilah, confirmed the incident and said the institution would soon issue its position on the matter.

“Normalcy has been restored and things are going on normally in the school.

“We will soon issue a statement on the incident,” Mathilah said.

Also, the spokesman of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Suleiman Baba, said the corps deployed its men when the crisis started around 2 a.m.

“Things are under control. I am still waiting for the details before I can tell you what really happened or number of casualties,” Baba said.
