Soldiers, police tackle protesting UNIABUJA students

Detachments of soldiers and policemen on Tuesday morning battled to dislodge protesting students of the University of Abuja from some major streets of the federal capital.
The students had taken their protest to the streets after UNIABUJA authorities shut the school.
The authorities were reacting to the students’ protest, which disrupted activities in the institution on Monday.
The students moved to the streets of Abuja and remained overnight, demanding action on the non-accreditation of some courses in Engineering, Agriculture and Science faculties by the National Universities Commission.
Their street protest grounded Gwagwalada, the Abuja suburb where the school is located, as well as Airport Road, Abuja.
Many motorists and other road users were stranded on some roads in Abuja overnight.
More details later.
