Imo - A group of disgruntled residents of Umuago Urualla village, Ideato North local council area of Imo state, have reportedly launched an attack on the university, destroying part of the building, Vanguard reports.
One of the locals commented on the incident: “The state government acquired the 12-hectare piece of land when it planned to transfer IMSU to the place.”
He further explained that the raid may have been caused by the situation in the area — communities in Ideato South Local Government Area, whose territory was acquired for construction are duly compensated, while people in Urualla are ignored, intimidated and oppressed.
In April this year the National University Commission (NUC) gave recognition to the Eastern Palm University in Ogboko, Imo state according to Naij.
