Photos: Fidei Polytechnic Gboko, Benue state shut down following violent protest
The management of Fidei Polytechnic, Gboko in Benue state today shut down the school indefinitely following a violent protest by some students. According to eyewitnesses, there was tension in the school yesterday after the school management disallowed some students who had paid their school fees but had not collected their school receipts to write their exams which started yesterday August 23rd.
The appeal by the students did not move the management who were adamant as they had given the students enough time to do all the necessary registration before the commencement of their semester examination.
Out of frustration, some of the students took laws into their hands by breaking some of the school properties. The policemen that were invited to maintain law and order were attacked by the irate students. More photos from the protest and clash with the police below...
