Minna - The Authorities of Niger College of Education, Minna, on Thursday banned student unions following the hijacking of the Student Union Government (SUG) election by hoodlums.
Malam Sule Ladan, the Dean Student Affairs, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that students disqualified from the SUG election because of their low cumulative grade point disrupted the election.
According to him the school has swung into action to cancel the election and reduce tension and unravel the perpetrators of the crime for appropriate punishment.
He, however, expressed disappointed over the development because a lot of money and time had gone into the preparation for the election only for some hoodlums to disrupt it.
Similarly, the incumbent Student’s Union President Mr Shehu Ndanaimi, blamed outside interference for the crisis and impatience as everyone was jostling to vote.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many students were rushed to the school's health centre for treatment following injuries they got during the crisis.
