Reports from Plateau State say that unknown gunmen this evening stormed the University of Jos and shot several students, leaving at least two female students dead.
Although details are sketchy, our sources say that several others escaped with injuries.
A source told SaharaReporters there is tension on the campus as hundreds of students were seen running for their lives, unwilling to wait for an explanation as to what had led to the shootings.
The source said that armed security personnel have already been dispatched to the university, but the identity of the attackers and their motives are still unknown.
As of the time of this report, neither the Plateau State Police Command, nor the Special Task Force nor the management of the university has issued a statement concerning the attack.
