Students of the University of Benin on Tuesday blocked the busy Benin-Lagos expressway in front of the school in protest over the school management’s decision on school fees.
According to reports gathered by ZIONPAY NEWS, the school only resumed a week ago, and the authorities of the institution had slammed a sanction on them over late payment of school fees.
The students were told to pay extra N20,000 as penalty for late payment of fees, even though the school only resumed a week ago, and some students had not even returned to campus.
The barricade set up by the students has caused a major traffic gridlock along the Lagos-Benin expressway which is a major route to the eastern and Niger Delta parts of the country.
The school authorities were yet to react to the development as of the time of filing this report.
