Alvan Ikoku College Shut Down As Student Protested Increase Of School Fees And Aceeptance Fee

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.

The provost of the institution, Dr Blessing Ijeoma, confirmed the closure. She said that the management issued the directive after the students destroyed the institution’s administrative block and about nine government vehicles. “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,” 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. They also alleged that the management raised the school fees from N30,000 to N70,000. The students said the essence of the protest was to draw the attention of management to their plight.

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. NAN
