Two female students from the University of Cross River State (UNICROSS) were seen in a violent fight, reportedly due to a romantic involvement with a male student. The dispute between the two young women reportedly centered around a particular male student.
Eyewitnesses and online reports indicate that tensions flared, resulting in a physical confrontation between the two unidentified students.
The incident occurred near the old Mass Communication Department block, along the path that houses the Department of Estate Management and Urban and Regional Planning.
In a video circulating widely on the internet, the two students can be seen exchanging slaps and blows while surrounded by a group of onlookers.
Despite attempts by bystanders to intervene and diffuse the situation, the two fighting females continued to exchange blows until they eventually fell to the ground, where the altercation continued.
