Amidst rumors of an alleged assault, a notice was issued on NTU’s Student Union Instagram page at around 1.30am, for everyone to remain indoors as police investigations continued late into the night.

NTU tweet assures students not to worry about safety

At around 8.45am, NTU’s official Twitter account issued a tweet to address the rumours.

The statement reads as follows,

The University would like to assure all students that there is no cause for concern for their safety on campus. NTU is working with the police and an official statement will be issued later today.

In short, the school assured parents and students that there was no immediate cause for concern for the “safety of students”.

Confirming that they were assisting the police in investigations, the school promised to address the matter in a statement to be issued later in the day.

Stay safe, everyone & let’s await the police’s statement

Although mainstream media has yet to pick up on the story, we would expect that they have withheld on reporting on the issue for reasons unknown to us at the time of writing.

We’re sure that the story will be made clear once the statement is released. In the meantime, do look out for our updates on the situation.

Stay safe, everyone.
