Students of the Federal University of Technology, Minna have been fined N4,950 each for damages on properties during demonstration by the students which occurred two weeks ago.
The University has also postponed the resumption date to the 18th of March, 2017.
The decision of the management was contained in a circular issued by the office of the Registrar of the university, Mrs. Victoria Kolo.
“The extension is to enable management carry out some repairs and replacements of properties damaged during the unfortunate students’ unrest of Wednesday, February 15, 2017”, the circular stated.
It will be recalled that on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, the students embarked on a demonstration after the death of one of their colleague s at the University clinic where they alleged that the clinic staff did not attend to him on time. In turn, the already agitated students burnt down the university clinic and destroyed a lot of properties in the Bosso Campus.
The students have been mandated to pay a restitution fee of N4,950 and bring an undertaking to be of good behaviour which must be written and signed by their parents.
“Each student is to pay a restitution fee of N4,950.00 only between Saturday, 4 and Saturday 11 March, 2017, through the University portal. Students are to obtain letters of undertaking to be of good behavior written and signed by their parents/guardians, which must be supported with a sworn court affidavit.
“Students are to submit to their appropriate School Secretaries evidence of payment, letter of undertaken and court affidavit”, the circular stated.
