The clash between the students of the Federal Polytechnic Bida and members of the Bida community has left many dead and others injured.
Reports show that the students of the polytechnic boarded a bus from Minna which was supposed to take them to their school but the driver dropped them instead at the park saying that was the last bus stop.
The students were said to have reported to the park officials what the driver did but they were ignored.
Reports also have it that when the students returned to the park with student union officials to complain, they were beaten up by some boys at the park.
The students returned to the park to fight back and many lost their lives in the clash including a lecturer of the school. A driver believed to be an indigene was also killed which made the clash full blown.
Many properties have been destroyed in the clash and efforts of both police and vigilante groups to stop the clash have been ineffective.
