Professor Ashafa maintained that 600 level medical students were recalled for exams and 4 of them were suspected and isolated at Hamdala Isolation Centre.

He said they have since completed 8weeks community diagnosis, and we’re together in the past 16 weeks without any challenge about coronavirus or any ailment.

Professor Ashafa described the postulation of the KASU-ASUU Chairman as mischievous and devilish.

The DVC academic also said that the school is observing covid-19 protocol as advised by health professionals and relevant agencies.

He therefore called on staff and students of the institution to continue their academic activities as the management is taking necessary measures.
