KUST shut over students protest

The management of the Kano University of Science and Technology (KUST), Wudil in Kano State, has closed down the school for two weeks following following students’ protest on Wednesday night over the death of their colleague.

The deceased, a 300 level student of Biology Education, Faruk Abubakar was drowned in River Wudil on Wednesday.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Shehu Alhaji Musa, at a press briefing on Thursday disclosed that the school will be shut down for two weeks, after which the students will resume for the second semester of the session.

“The incident coincided with the mid-semester break hence our decision to close the school to students and entire school community to observe two days mourning after which the students proceed on the break,” the Vice-Chancellor said.

According to him, the students had been directed to vacate the campus before closing hours of Thursday, May 3.

He said three students went to the River on Wednesday to swim but were warned by the security not to go into the River.
