University Of Uyo- UNIUYOShut Down, After 4 StudentsDies in Yesterdays Riot!!!

Post by Ashawo on 13/06/13, 05:28 pm

The University of Uyo in Akwa Ibom State was,
Wednesday, closed down indefinitely as four
students were reportedly killed during violent
encounter with the Police.The students it was
revealed had embarked on peaceful protest on
the campus over the introduction of a new fare
regime for the engineering andscience students
from the town campus to permanent site when
the policearrived and allegedly opened fire that
claimed lives of the students.
Following the killing of the students, some
buildings on the town campus were burnt down
last night. These included the office of the Vice
Chancellor and that of the Registrar.
The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof.
Comfort Ekpo, was said to have traveled to Abuja
on official engagement when the incident
occurred.
Some Principal Officers of the University were
reported to have been rescued from their
hideouts through the use of ambulance escorted
by the Peace on Campus Initiative of the
University.
When Vanguard visited the university, students
were seen rushing out from the campus with
their bags and valuable items as they were
ordered to vacate their hostels immediately.
Sources said trouble escalated when the
students broke the rule to move their protest
outside the school premises. They reportedly
met a stiff resistance from security operatives
at the Ikot Ekpene-Ikpa road round about.
In the violent confrontation, the police were said
to have moved in with about15 Hilux vans fully
loaded with armed police. They reportedly
openedfired and threw tear gas canisters on the
students which resulted in the death of the four
students.
The school authority, it was gathered recently
announced a new fare of N200 per day to convey
students from the town campus to the
permanentsite with effect from yesterday
through private consultancy arrangement.
Some of the students who spoke with Vanguard
said they were not comfortable with some of
polices being implementation in the school. A
final year law student who didn’t want his name in
print said the police came in during the peaceful
protest to shoot sporadically which led to the
death of the students. He said: “We were not
armed but police came with all sorts of
ammunition in a peaceful protest embarked upon
by the students.”
A 300 level engineering student lamented the
increase in fare which he said was not adequately
communicated to the students. He noted: “Even
the vehicles were not even available when the
school authority began to harass students over
payment. The matter is that we do not want this
VC any more. Federal Government should look for
a more competent hand to govern the affairs of
the school.
“How can we pay N200 for the Federal
Government intervention vehicle? Itis not done.
We are not going to accept this.”
The Chief Security Officer, Col. Nyong (rtd) who
was chased out from the campus admitted that
school management brought in a private
consultant to handle student transportation from
the town campus to the permanent site but at
the rate of N100.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) ASP
Etim joystickson confirmed the riot in the
University and denied knowledge of the death of
any student. According to him, the situation is
not clear as to what is going on in the campus as
the police are not allowed to enter inside the
school.
He added: “We are outside to prevent escalation
of the protest. We are aware of the
demonstration, but we don’t have authorization to
enter campus.”
