Riot at University of Uyo leaves one student dead

The Engineering students of the University of Uyo this afternoon went for a peaceful demonstration to the office of the school's Vice Chancellor, Prof Comfort Ekpo, after the VC mandated students to pay N100 for the school bus which used to be free. The school management had shifted most of the Science student courses to the school's permanent site which is about 20 minutes drive from the main campus, and then made the shuttle N100. That means students will have to pay N200 to and fro everyday to the permanent campus for most of their lectures.

This was what the students were protesting this afternoon when things went crazy. The peaceful protest turned violent after security officials at the V.C's office tried to stop the students from gaining access to the Vice Chancellor.

The students allegedly retaliated by throwing stones at the security officials, who then called for police back-up which led to the riot. The police arrived the scene and aggravated the situation by firing shots at the students, killing at least one student. Some say two. Some say three.

Angry students now proceeded to burn down the VC's office, the exams and records building, and a security office. Students have been evacuated from the hostel, and the school has been shut down indefinitely.

Failure by nigerian security system

Anonymous said...

See what the VC's action has caused now, am sure he ordered his securities not to all them gain entrance to him, is he not their VC? Why not listen to them and promise them something, and our police can like to use their guns sha, must they shot at the student? What happen to teargas? And the student also can over do things, there are ways in making your protest, if you didn't see him that day, you should go and come back another day and maybe stay there till he come out of his office, he won't sleep in there na. The student will pay back for all the damages before resumption now, so who wins? Am just sorry for those lives that were lost. *ThatFunctionGuy*

Why will the student destroy property? This is against the spirit of aluta. There are great measures and techniques to destabilize the school activities that the vc and management can't withstand to demonstrate their grievances. May the soul of the student who died the fracas rest in peace.

pure adminstrative ineptitude. A student could have 5 lectures in a day. the studen will hav to shuttle between the two campus if the lectures are sandwiched and sometimes barely meeting up with the lectures. in practical terms, a student could end up paying N1,000 a day on the school bus.

This news is really sad. My heart goes out to those killed by the unreasonable police men. But I must say, the students as well as the police is at fault here. People know the kind of country they live in, a few months ago, we heard the Nassarawa State story. Why won't they just learn from the actions of others? Take other measures to resolve the issue! The police completely lacked the incentives to do anything. Shooting unarmed citizens is wrong in every way. And for the students burning down the records department, that was completely uncalled for. People must think carefully before they make decisions. What then is the purpose of the education they supposedly received?

This foolishness' madness or is it stupidity? How can students burn both the exams office and records. the grave implication of this reckless behavior in the name of demonstration is that, even for those that passed through the university technically do not have any records with the institution. This university should be closed for at least one year. leaders of tommorow indeed.

Uniuyo students say "a luta continua, victoria acerta"... but certainly victoria wasn't acerta...information 9ja, as@ the time of the protest, lectures and school activities were going on well in engineering faculty so 90% of the protesters weren't engineering students. B4 updating a news get accurate information.... thank yhu.
