Student shot dead while protesting tuition hike in Kaduna

Share This

A student of the Kaduna State College of Education, Gidan Waya, Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has been shot dead.



It was gathered that the deceased who joined his colleagues to protest a hike in their school fees was dropped dead when security operatives made an attempt to disperse them forcefully.

Speaking with Newsmen, one of the protesters, who preferred anonymity, said they came out to protest over the increase of school fees in the state-owned institution but met security operatives outside the college.

Report has it that one other student identified as Emmanuel Nata was also shot but he is currently receiving treatment.

Confirming the incident to our correspondent during a press conference, National President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Sunday Asefon, said he gathered that two students were killed during the protest while another was shot.

He lamented that the state government did not take into consideration prevailing economic realities in the country before taking increasing tuition.

The student said they found it extremely hard to cope with the previous school fees that ranged between N25,000 to N33,000 and wonder what will happen with the present increment to N75,000.

When contacted, the Provost of the College, Professor Alexander Kure who confirmed the protest, said he was yet to establish reasons for the development.
