Activities in the ‘ever pulsating’ city of Markudi, the state capital of Benue, have been shut down temporarily, following a peaceful protest by the students of the state owned University, BSU, over the hike in their school fees.
Daily Post gathered that this is the second time the students would be protesting since the university management introduced new conditional charges that resulted in an over 400% hike in school fees early last month.
The online media house also revealed that the students are currently protesting along the highway, as they demand that the state governor, Samuel Ortom reverse the decision without delay.
Stay tuned! More details to be added as the story develops…
