The student, identified as James Chia is said to have been shot a few minutes after his examinations on Monday afternoon and axed to death by suspected gangstars belonging to a rival gang.
The institution is currently writing its first semester examinations for the 2018/2019 session following delays due to a face off between management and students over the ratio of students who have paid their fees.
Information reaching CrossRiverWatch as at press time suggests that security personnel were near the scene of the incident.
