It was earlier reported of how there was chaos at Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State after students, yesterday, protested due to lack of power supply, water and plans by the university to increase school fees.
The students who complained they pay over N400, 000 as school fees and yet they don’t enjoy the basic amenities a private university ought to have vented out their anger by smashing cars, scattering buildings and more.
According to a student who lamented they were not being treated well said: “They take the light by 8am, and bring it back by 8pm and it goes off by 11pm again. We don’t have water, no socket light, while our lecturers are in AC offices and cars. We have time table for eating. 7-9am for breakfast, 12-3 for lunch and 6-8 for dinner. Most times we have classes during these periods”
Following the protest by the students the management of Bowen University has asked all students to leave the university as the school was this morning closed indefinitely.
Meanwhile some students who were detained last night after the riot are yet to be released.
