The students of the university had mobilised themselves for a mass protest against the university authorities.
The students who are complaining about the high fees students have had to pay, being one of the highest paying federal universities in the country. And the management had statstated all those who failed to pay their fees would not sit for the semester examinations.
Lamenting about the poor state of the country’s economy the students have risen up, by this action calling for a few decrease and extension of the deadline, a consequent postponement of the exams.
Students could be seen with placards, chanting and singing aluta songs, motor tyres were burnt on the road, before security officials intervened and used tear gas to cause students to retreat.
