Authorities Shut UNN Over Students’ Protest

Authorities of the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus (UNEC) on Wednesday officially shut down the school indefinitely.

In a statement signed by Prof. Smart N. Uchegbu, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Enugu Campus, the school announced the immediate and indefinite closure of the university following last Monday’s students’ protests over poor academic environment, that halted academic activities.

“This is to bring to the notice of the University Community that in the light of the violent protest and monumental destruction of properties on 13th June, 2016, the Vice Chancellor has approved the implementation of the measures listed below:

“Immediate suspension of the Enugu Campus Student Union Government; and closure of the University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus indefinitely,” the statement said.

Students of the university had last Monday announced the disruption of academic and other activities in the Enugu campus of the university for one week over alleged poor academic environment.

The students, who complained against absence of water, electricity, among others, prevented lecturers and non-academic staff from carrying out their normal duties in their offices.
