Edward said the university’s Senate viewed the protest was uncalled for and unnecessary as the students barricaded the Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi highway.

He denied social media report that two students were shot by security agents.

He said the students were given until 4pm to vacate the institution.

His words: “No student was shot. They barricaded the highway and soldiers escorting an army vehicle that was passing the road had to shoot into the air to scare the students away.
