MOUAU Students Protests Over Hike in School Fees, Exam Deprivation
MOUAU Student Protest, Feb. 6th 2024

Just In — Protest broke out at the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Abia State over hikes in School fees and exam deprivation on failure of students to meet the bill.

Following the demonstration, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Maduebibisi Ofo Iwe was caught fleeing the scene in a viral video on social media as students protested in displeasure over the hardship created by the recent hike in school fees, especially as it causes exam deprivation.

This is a response to the Vice Chancellor chasing students out of the exam hall on the ‘NO SCHOOL FEES, NO EXAM’ Policy.

The school authority in the outburst of student demonstrations called the law enforcement agency which released tear gas into the crowd, leaving many injured.

The story is still developing.
