EBSU STUDENT RIOTS
Angry students of Ebonyi State University this morning stormed the Canaan Lodge, Ishieke hostel of the Student Union Government president where they destroyed the SUG bus, looted a provisions store belonging to him andvandalized property.
The students said they were protesting the insensitivity of the SUG president especially his silence over the 100% increase in school fees. The angry students believed he had been settled to keep quiet so he became theirmain target.
The police were later called in and they shot tear gas to disperse the students. Sanity has since returned to the school.
