  |   Nigeria News

The management of Alvan Ikoku Federal Collage of Education, Owerri, has announced the indefinite closure of the institution following a protest by the students on Monday.

“We have approved an indefinite closure of AICE following today’s students’ protest and we have directed that every student should vacate the school premises,” she said.

Students of AIFCE staged a violent protest against the management of the institution over the hike in both tuition and acceptance fees.

The students said that management decided to increase the acceptance fee from N10,000 to N30,000 without consultation.

However, the provost said the students’ claims were baseless and added that hoodlums seized the opportunity to cart away valuables, such as computers, from the ICT centre.
