FUTO Owerri

Large youths from the host communities have reportedly invaded the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO), pulled down about 5 kilometres of the fence of the institution as students and management of have been gripped by fear following the invasion of the school.

According to a report by Daily Sun, most of the staff and students of the institution are said to have restrained themselves from going out of the school premises once its 6:30p.m since the incident occurred.

While speaking to a correspondent, one of the student, identified as Chika Amadi, said “This host communities are mean. If they can pull down a perimeter fence of the school of about 5 kilometres, then there is nothing that they cannot do to us.”

Another student identified as Jude Obi, a second year Engineering department who also spoke to a correspondent, said that the host communities have been exhibiting hostilities towards them since the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Francis Eze, waded into the encroachment of lands close to the school hostels.

He said: “We cannot even sleep again with our two eyes closed, the host communities have started erecting their buildings beside our hostels, they attack us at no just cause, telling us to our face that they owned the land.”

A staff of the institution, who do want his name mentioned, cried out to the level of intimidation meted to the school by the host communities. 


“How can they come into our school to build factories and excavate our sand. The bridge we cross inside the school premises is at the verge of collapse as a result of the excavation of sand at the foot of the pillars holding the bridge,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Public Relation of the School, Dr Chile Ezenwa, narrated the incident and said that the youths of the host communities invaded the school premises at about 7pm on Monday and pulled down their fence.

According to Ezenwa, “We were told that the host communities might have invaded the school at night, because the fence where still intact on Monday morning, we woke up to see the level of destruction by the host communities.”
