University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, Enugu Campus, has been closed down following protest by the students who claimed there is poor power supply, lack of water as well as poor accommodation.
Consequently, all students were sent packing from their hostels and from the school premises.
The deputy vice chancellor of the University, Prof. Smart N. Uchegbu, ordered the closure of the school indefinitely, following a violent protest embarked upon by the students last Monday.
Ugbegbu also ordered the immediate suspension of the Student Union Government, SUG, because of their role during the protest.
“This is to bring to the notice of the University Community that in the light of the violent protest and monumental destruction of properties on 13th June, 2016, the Vice Chancellor has approved the implementation of the measures listed below – immediate suspension of the Enugu Campus Student Union Government and closure of the University, Enugu Campus indefinitely,” a release signed by the deputy vice chancellor reads.
During the protest, the students shut down the school and did not allow lectures to go on, neither did they allow staff and lectures to go in or move out of the school gate until, according to them, the school authorities listens to their grievances.
Even the presence of the police and other security agencies would not stop them from embarking on the peaceful protest that allegedly turned violent eventually.
The students carried placards that showed that they had no light for about two weeks, had no water and even the Wifi services they paid for, they were not enjoying among other things.
When Nigerian Pilot arrived at the school gate, students were seen in groups discussing their woes while others packed their belongings and were heading home.
None of the students would speak on the development as they were busy seeking vehicles that would convey them to their destinations.
