Anambra varsity shut, female student killed

Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State on Wednesday ordered the closure of Anambra State University after  students demonstration paralysed activities at the Igbariam campus of the university.

Students had gone on the streets on Wednesday morning after gunmen, suspected to be armed robbers, killed a female student the night before.

The students, who blocked the Igbariam – Awkuzu Road and the Enugu -Onitsha Expressway, accused the management of the institution of failing to provide adequate security for students.

They also called for on-campus accommodation for students, complete with water and power supply.

Governor Obi cut short his visits to mission hospitals and schools and rushed to Igbariam on hearing about the students’ demonstration.

He immediately ordered that the institution be closed when the students could not be controlled.
