UNIBEN stops N20,000 fee as students force VC to trek

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Benin, Professor Lilian Salami, on Wednesday, rescinded the decision to impose N20,000 late registration fee on students of the institution.

Trouble started on Tuesday when the students took to the street to protest the fee, as they blocked the Lagos-Benin Expressway and the Ekheuna Road, where both campuses of the school were located.

The aggrieved students on Wednesday ignored the order of the varsity Senate shutting the school, as they continued their protest over the fee.
