The student body decided to boycott classes on Monday, October 22, 2018, as a way of registering their displeasure with happenings on campus.

It, however, ended in widespread chaos in some parts of the school as the students reportedly damaged some school properties including vandalizing the school's administration block.

But in all the chaos, there was a funny twist. Some students shifted from the focus of their demonstration and stormed the house of a security officer.

After storming the house, they seized a pot of banku, which was on fire and marched away with it.
