The management of Arthur Jarvis University in Cross River State has shut down the school indefinitely following the kidnapping of a student on Tuesday night.
The private university’s acting Registrar, Ughas Ngozi Felicia, issued the circular on Wednesday directing parents and guardians to pick up their children and wards from the university within 24 hours.
According to the statement, students currently writing examinations will continue in the next academic session, while final year students who are to do their final defence will be notified in due course.
The statement said, “The Management has approved the commencement of the 2021/2022 vacation with effect from Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
“All students are, hereby, expected to vacate the university premises. The date of resumption for the new academic session will be communicated in due course.
“All outstanding examinations will be taken at the beginning of the next session. Final year students will be notified of the date/details of their Project Defence.”
Unidentified gunmen kidnapped a student and other students sustained injuries while trying to escape on Tuesday night while the students were returning from night classes.
