#BowenRiot: “Our VC Treats Us Like Prisoners” – Bowen University Students Riot & Vandalize School [PHOTOS]

share on:

Students of Bowen University, Iwo, Osun state took matters into their hands as they protested the reign of current VC, Matthew Ojo.

The students, who had had enough of Ojo’s Nazi-like regime, started a riot at about 9pm on Wednesday night, destroying cars, street lights, shops, windows and even burnt part of some buildings.

According to a source at the University, Ojo had brought in rules that were not favorable to student life in the least.

The VC had reportedly denied the students basic amenities, giving them food and light only in restricted periods.

“You can’t eat except at stipulated hours,” the source said. “You fill statement forms if you’re caught eating. No break time in between classes to support the food timetable though. So if your class falls during the eating period, you’re not eating.”

He also infringed on their health rights, denying students access to healthcare after 6pm.

With all these, it’s easy to see why the students would have been forced to carry out their actions.

See pictures from the mayhem below.

  8. “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.”….Bowenites, leave those running their mouths like damaged pipes alone. CU will join soon. #i rep the GENERATION CHANGERS

  9. 9ice 1 guys,am old student,2nd set,i hate bowen.its what they have been trying to avoiding since,by stoping the over aged student during screening because they know they will be old and brave enough to fight for their right.i knew tis kind of thing will happen,during my time we were paying over 300k,no water,and if there is you will have to queue up like a refugee,where as in some fed university where they pay less than 30k they have water and stable power.there was a day that we queue on a tap drop under the sun and if you want to use the toilet that time you have to do what we call “top up”shit ontop shit because there was no water.bowen university is govern by some old cargo who are old enough to die with their old ideas.no new idea at all,at dis time of age,locking up and restricting university student like they were some primary sch student,there is no way if you push someone to the wall he will face you back.it’s what we should have stop during our time but all the same you guys tried,always stand up for your right it’s part of the reason you’re sent to school.aluta continua,great bowen!great!.teekay

  10. Matthew ojo am very sure u can’t have a good home ur wife and children are just ur slaves and u the master . It’s really shows ur leadership role as a bad one, gadaffi, hitler, Matthew ojo they all ended badly . You are man with poisonous actions,evil to our generation, u r a bad man, father, and brother a disgrace to ur fellow professors. I wonder how u where brought up.

  11. Its very unfortunate that undergraduates of a university where parents have to cough out hundreds of thousands of naira to get them educated would reason like this, act in this barbaric manner and even stand here to justify their actions. Gosh! This is irritating! In this new age? Where is the place of dialogue in conflict resolution? Where is the place of peaceful protest? Guess, many skipped the classes where all these were taught. Even the use of socialist media was neglected and now, they re making known what led to the riot after the deed had been done. Even acts like this are no longer common in got owned universities. Have you all forgotten your parents would be made to pay for the damages? Or you thought they will let it slip just like that? I pity the promoters of this act cos every er supporter will chicken out at the slightest threat and the perpetrators risk expulsion and being denied admission into other institutions. Its just unfortunate that leaders of tomorrow have still not learnt that violence destroys rather than build. Now, wee are back at the base, can you go to the classes now, resume school and pretend its business as usual? No! I think we really need to build our babies up before sending them away to higher institution to avoid giving babes bones to crack. Grow up babies, we parents are disappointed.

    1. God bless you ma, you have just said the right thing, i pray God grant them the grace to understand all these well. God help Bowen…God help Nigerian Baptist Convention.. God help all Private Universities especially christian owned… God help Nigeria.
