College suspends 4 students over protest

31 July 2012, 12:19

Taraba - The College of Education, Zing, Taraba , on Monday suspended four students indefinitely for allegedly inciting a protest in the institution.

The affected  students are  Hudu Yusuf, Elijah Kusseh, Saalu Iodge and Emmanuel Tsav  from the  English department.

The students were protesting over the lack of  social amenities in the college.

The students alleged that the college authorities had denied them inconvenience allowance following the relocation of the institution from Jalingo to Zing.

When contacted, the provost of the college, Dr Joseph Sale, confirmed the suspension of  the students for disrupting academic activities. 

He denied that the students were denied inconvenience allowance, saying that they were not entitled to such payment. 

Sale described the students' action  as unacceptable.

The students’ union leader of the college, Mr. Isaac Gabriel, said that the  affected students erred.

He said that the lack of water, electricity among others were genuine complaints made by  the students but did not warrant closing the school.
