The Benue State University students' protest has forced the management to postpone its planned examination.

Students of Benue State University have reportedly shut down their institution.

The students who protested against the school management's refusal to allow students who are yet to pay their fees to partake in the examination reportedly barricaded the entrance gates to the institution as early as 6a.m.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, some of the students who carried placards with various inscriptions said the state-owned institution’s decision was not justifiable, since the state government is also owing their parents salary arrears and allowances.

Some of the placards had inscriptions like: “What will our parents use for payment of school fees, when salaries of over a year are not paid?”

The students reportedly locked the two major gates leading to the school premises, chanting solidarity songs.
Examination postponed

However, due to the protest, the management of the institution has postponed its planned session examination over students’ protest.
