There was pandemonium at the University of Jos, Plateau State, on Thursday, as both lecturers and students fled the campus following the sighting of an alleged suicide bomber.
Our correspondent gathered that the suspect was apprehended by the students as he tried to enter the premises.
The alarm raised by the students sent everybody scampering for safety. However some students summoned up courage to capture the alleged bomber, who was almost beaten to a pulp before he was rescued by the school security.
Immediately the news went round, even students and teachers in lecture halls thought it wise to abandon their books as they took to their heels for dear life.
Details later.
