The memo further highlighted the disappointment of the Management with the students’ behavior before, during, and after the demonstration. In response, an investigative committee will be formed to identify and address the underlying causes of the demonstration.

The memo also outlined specific requirements for the suspended students upon their return. Each student must present a Sworn Affidavit from a competent Court of Law declaring their good conduct, accompanied by their Parent/Guardian who will sign an undertaking. Additionally, the Benue State University Medical Students Association (BESUMSA) has been suspended until further notice.

The memo concluded by directing the suspended medical students to vacate their hostels immediately on October 30th. “However, it emphasized that the academic activities of the 100-level medical students remain unaffected by the suspension”.
