The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin, Prof. Lilian Salami, has asked students to vacate the school premises before 12pm on Wednesday following the protest that rocked the institution on Tuesday.
NAIJLOADED recalls that students of the institution, yesterday, blocked the ever-busy Benin-Lagos Expressway and the Ekheuan Road over an N20,000 late registration fee imposed by the school management.
The students had described the decision of the school authority as unpleasant citing the â€œunfavourable economic situationâ€™â€™ currently bedevilling the entire country.
The school closure was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the Registrar of the institution, Mr Ademola Bobola, Salami.
â€œThe Vice-Chancellor has reviewed the agitation by a section of the studentsâ€™ body on Tuesday.
â€œAfter due consultation and in the overall interest of all studentsâ€™ body, the Vice-Chancellor has, on behalf of Senate, approved the immediate closure of the University.
â€œThis is based on security reports to avoid the studentsâ€™ action being hijacked by hoodlums, and thereby prevent any form of breakdown of law and order within and outside the campuses of the University,â€™â€™ she said.
