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.
