Lead City University Arrest's Four Armed Students

Before you start reading whatever punch has reported, TRENDS by Bukchris does not agree with the story. The students arrested did not start the unrest because they were on probation, it's because the university has not been very honest with them about their course which is not yet accredited. The school may have found out that they were on probation after the arrest but their motive was to protest the non-accreditation of their course.  So Lead City University Authorities please learn to say the truth. It won't kill....
Authorities of the Lead City University, Ibadan have arrested four students in connection with the recent protest on the school campus.

The affected students, according to a copy of the institution’s weekly bulletin obtained by THE PUNCH on Friday, were allegedly found with ‘dangerous weapons’ at the time of their arrest and were immediately handed over to the police for prosecution.

The school authorities attributed the unrest in the school to some students on probation. It also said an unnamed parent came to the last session of the university’s Parents Forum with a double-barrelled gun hidden in his car.

The bulletin reads, “The university management is aware of the activities of some students who were on probation list before now to cause disaffection among other serious students in the university.

“Their intention is to instigate other students to go on rampage and disrupt academic activities.

“It is also disheartening to discover that a parent whose ward is on probation came to the last Parents Forum with a double barrelled gun hidden in his jeep and he was subsequently arrested and handed over to the police. His motive is still under investigation.”

The university urged all bonafide students to be vigilant and avoid being used for criminal activities.

Our correspondent learnt that The institution’s leadership had asked members of staff and students to always display their identity cards conspicuously to avoid embarrassment from security operatives. Those without ID cards will not be allowed into the university premises from Monday, our correspondent also learnt.

Some students had last Monday protested on the campus over the face-off between the university and the National Universities Commission. They destroyed school property while some students sustained varying degrees of injury as they tried to flee to safety.

The NUC had claimed that the university had no accreditation for its Law, Nursing and Postgraduate programmes and directed the school to discontinue the programmes forthwith.
