UNIBEN Senate Shuts Down Institution till Further Notice

University of Benin (UNIBEN) Senate Temporarily Shuts Down the Institution till Further Notice Following Students Protest Due to Increment of School Fees.

Following two days of protest by students of the University of Benin over late school fees payment levy, the Senate of the University has met, virtually, and authorised the closure of the University with immediate effect.

The University's decision-making body said the action was taken due to security advice and also to prevent the escalation of the protest which was already being hijacked by external forces.

The University's Senate said the students will be called to school as soon as it was right to do so.
