The incident took place on Monday night, Rufaro said another chant not recorded was "blacks would go back to picking cotton".

Rufaro Chisango posted a minute-long video of the incident on Twitter. "Words can not describe how sad this makes me feel, in this 2018 people think this is still acceptable", Rufaro Chisango, who goes by the name "Ruu" on Twitter, wrote on Wednesday.

In the clip at least two men can be heard chanting "we hate the blacks" and making other racist comments.

The two 18-year-old men were arrested earlier today on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offences and the 18-year-old woman was interviewed in connection with the incident, which is being treated as a hate crime.

Other chants captured by the video include "We are the black haters" and "Sign the Brexit papers".

"I told the reception and they said that this would be dealt with Tuesday morning, they took my details and told me they would inform me.it's Wednesday night and they haven't", Chisango said.

The statement added: "We value being a diverse global community with staff and students from across the world".

The school suspended the men and started an investigation. "Our enquiries are ongoing".


A spokesperson for Nottingham Trent University has told The Tab that despite the boys' release, the students remain automatically banned from campus grounds.

Over a thousand people replied to Chisango's tweet, including Labour MP David Lammy. "We are in regular contact with our student who made the complaint and are providing support".

In a statement confirming the suspected perpetrators had been suspended pending a full investigation, the university said: "This kind of vile behaviour will not be tolerated".

"It was a big impact obviously, when it happened".


Nottingham police also explained their part in the probe on Twitter.

In response to criticism surrounding its handling of the incident, the university said: "It's clear that there have been delays in dealing with this incident, and that is completely unacceptable".

The spokesman added: "We are shocked and appalled to see the video of racist chanting posted yesterday evening. We will review our processes to ensure this never happens again".
