Students riot in Ebonyi State University

Angry students of Ebonyi State University this morning stormed the Canaan Lodge, Ishieke hostel of the Student Union Government president where they destroyed the SUG bus, looted a provisions store belonging to him and vandalized property.

The students said they were protesting the insensitivity of the SUG president especially his silence over the 100% increase in school fees. The angry students believed he had been settled to keep quiet so he became their main target.

The police were later called in and they shot tear gas to disperse the students. Sanity has since returned to the school

I graduated from that school. Elechi don kill person. Every semester increase in school fees and the SUG does nothing about it. Linda you need to see the students are suffering oh God... Ishieke always ready for protests. After all these, the students will be made to pay for the damage through another increment.

You are a very big fool. So one shouldn't fight for their rights? You are the reason why Nigeria will never change, rather leave Nigeria to other developed and stable countries where at one point their citizens had to fight for their rights.

ELECHI uses the school fees money to build his ochudo city. He also owns a transport company. Now he needs more, the students will suffer. Most students are the ones paying their school fees themselves. I wonder how this man won the election. Why not senator ucha?

Ebonyi stress university will kill us oº°˚˚˚°

I graduated from dis said university and its really a pity dat school fee is increased every session. The hike in schook fees and nothing substantial to show for d increase is discouraging. This vry school has closed down the ff faculty: medicine/surgery, nursing,mass communication since d emergence of d governor who claims he has no money 2 fund dem. Funny enuf, d SUG is nt functional cos dey ar nt really d spokes man of d students. Am nt surprise @ dis news.

its unfortunate dis is happening to my fellow students.am a student in dis university...nothing had come to normal the students are still protesting up till today...d skull fees does nt affect me cuz am in my third year

It's unfortunate that this is happening in my ALMA MATER. It's also very sad and painful that we have leaders who don't really understand the true meaning of leadership. Leadership and governance is not a joke; it's a very serious business but our so called leaders chose to take it for granted for some selfish reasons. Leadership is all about influence and making sacrifices when the need arises.And all these must gear toward human and societal development. According to Obama, A LEADER IS POWERFUL TO THE DEGREE HE EMPOWERS OTHERS. Sam Egwu struggled to establish Ebonyi State University for reasons known to everyone when he was the governor. He has a powerful vision for the young Ebonyi State. We all know that no society can develop without affordable and available quality educational institutions. Education remains the key for societal development. Ebonyi State has a very low profile when it comes to literacy. So, what is wrong with the PRIMITIVE, ANACHRONISTIC AND ANTIQUE homosapien call Martins Elechi[I mean the governor]. He has never liked the state university. He always talk about closing it down. What a shame! I'm a product of that university and my lecturers were powerful and knowlegeable enough. I can hold my head high in the midst of my fellow Nigerian and foreign university graduates. And I always challenge them. I'm so proud of Ebonyi State University. I graduated from the department of political science. So, Elechi should look for ways of standardizing the institution rather than ridiculing it.

Well, I guess ur governor needed to hire top quality lecturers/consultants to improve the quality of graduates there judging by the comments of those 2 students above.

Yesterday, it was Nasarawa. Today its Ebonyi. Who knows where it will be 2moro. Nigeria has become one day one trouble. God help us

I dont get it. Why would students destroy what was paid for with their own money? The SUG bus? This is not the way to go Nigeria students. You can protest by refusing to attend classes, lock up the gates etc. BUT NOT destroying property!!
Youve got a LONG way to go-Nigeria.
