Eight Students of UNIJOS Shot During School Fee Protest

Following the protest by students of the University of Jos (UNIJOS), eight students have been confirmed to have sustained injuries during gunshots. this protest which occurred last week was as a result of school fees hike

Professor Hayward Mafuyai (Vice-Chancellor of the University), who confirmed the incident, said  “It is disheartening the level at which university properties and that of some innocent bystanders were destroyed during the unfortunate misadventure. One is left to wonder why students would deliberately want to break, burn and destroy facilities that are meant to enhance their learning experience.

“While we are deeply saddened by the plight of those students who sustained injuries during the fracas, we wish them quick and full recovery. We have visited all those who are still hospitalised and are also in touch with authorities of the Jos University Teaching Hospital to ensure that all those who need specialist attention are promptly given that”, he added.
