AAU Shut Indefinitely as Students Protest School Fees Hike
Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, has been shut down indefinitely as students violently protest hike in their schools fees.
Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Edo State, was Monday shut down indefinitely over a violent protest by students of the institution.
The students were protesting alleged 200 percent increase in the tuition fees of the institution.
A press statement signed by the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Edward Aihevbe, said the decision to close the institution indefinitely was reached after the University’ Senate reviewed the students’ protest.
Edward said the university’s Senate viewed the protest was uncalled for and unnecessary as the students barricaded the Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi highway.
He denied social media report that two students were shot by security agents.
He said the students were given until 4pm to vacate the institution.
His words: “No student was shot. They barricaded the highway and soldiers escorting an army vehicle that was passing the road had to shoot into the air to scare the students away.
