“At exactly 10 am, when I arrived at the building and opened my office, I started praying in my usual way, suddenly two men brandishing weapon bunched into my office and ordered me to go down flat on my face or they kill me.

“I pounced on them and the gun. But the duo started to hit me hard. I began to shout on top of my voice for help.

“When my voice went higher, they ran out and students tried to pursue after them but when they brandished their gun, the students also became afraid and ran back, giving them room to escape into the nearby bush.

“But during the scuffle in my office, their car key fell off which I picked and handed over to the University security unit.” he said.

As at the time of filing this report authority of the institution is yet to confirm the incident.
