Sapara, who had his face covered in blood after a bullet was said to have scraped the side of his head, was subsequently taken to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, with official report indicating that he was in stable condition.
The incident, however, led to chaos as students were seen running in different directions after a gunshot was heard.
Eyewitnesses said they saw a car speed off after the shooting, noting that the perpetrators might have carried out the attack from there.
Dean of Students’ Affairs of the University, Prof. Olukayode Amund, who confirmed that Sapara was indeed shot and currently recuperating at LUTH, stated that investigations had begun to unravel the circumstances surrounding the attack, after which requisite actions would be taken.
“The events surrounding the incident are still unknown and by the time we conclude our investigation, the university authority will take the necessary and appropriate action. Our security operatives are working very hard to unravel the mystery and whoever is responsible will be held to account.”
