The varsity, NDU has been shut down following students protesting the increment of fees. The school authorities relieved all student bodies, unions and declared a strike.

From our investigation, BNL Newspaper gathered that several workers in the Amassoma region which is the host community for the varsity lost their civil service jobs which also escalated to the people of the community going naked to lay curses on the incumbent governor of the state.

Many believe the clash between the police and youths of the community was a pay back from the governor to the community.

BNL Newspaper learned that the chaos occurred as a result of security operatives opening the varsity gate on Tuesday morning.
The citizens of the community came out peacefully to protest the opening of the varsity gate, the police opened fire on them leading to several deaths.
A source told BNL Newspaper; since they want to kill the school, let them leave it, we'll reopen when they leave power.
Which we believe was a statement directed at the state government. 
Another source said; after sacking Our mothers and no salaries, after trying to kill the school so people can go to his African university, he wants to open the school without properly addressing all these issues, then he should forget it....

Following the clash up to 12 persons where confirmed dead from our source.

However the death of a final year student known as EZE AMADI has left the entire student community and amassoma weeping.

Several persons has accused the government and condemned it's actions,
However the state government in a statement called the protesting youths hoodlums. 
The Bayelsa State Police Command has, however, said nobody was shot noting that it was Policemen that were attacked leading to the injury of one Police officer.
