Abuja - Police have used teargas to disperse protesting students at the University of Abuja.
Students are protesting against the shutdown of activities at the institution.
The students started the protest at the main entrance to Mini campus following the collapse of activities in the university due to the ongoing strike action by both the academic and con academic staff.
Staff have since Monday embarked on an indefinite strike, accusing the Vice Chancellor, Professor James Adelabu, of misappropriating the school’s funds.
They claimed he checked-off the staff dues in 2013 and refused to remit the fund. They also alleged that other allowances entitled to members were not paid by the authority.
When CAJ News visited the university on Thursday afternoon, the students had blocked the road in front of the school before the police intervened.
Some of the students said that they started the protest because they could not continue with their examination due to the strike.
