He explained that the students had tried fighting off some land guards accompanied by police officers who had tried pulling down structures put up by the school on a portion of the school’s land.

“They were land guards in the company of men in uniform who claim to come from the counter-terrorism unit. They came in a vehicle registered GV… We have a part of the land where we are trying to put up an assembly hall and some hostels. They wanted to demolish where we have raised the foundation for the assembly hall. We have the permission from the assembly for the construction,” he said.
