The university earlier sent home students who had protested in 2015 against poor sanitation at student halls of residence, including a student that had already graduated last year and a blind undergraduate.
While on the way from the dean’s office where they had gone to express their grievance, the protesting students were ambushed by security men.
One of the students who escaped arrest told SaharaReporters that the dean must have anticipated the visit of the students and therefore had planned for their apprehension.
He said the dean refused to meet the students despite all entreaties because he had alerted the security men to arrest any protesting student. The dean’s action was a contradiction to the commitment he made earlier to intervene in the matter affecting the rusticated students, he said.
