The students gathered in Freedom square of the institution, chanting solidarity songs like ” we are not going to pay anything. We no dey pay shi shi. Enough is enough!
The proposed congress that was supposed to hold at 11am today has been shifted.
In its place, the Peaceful Demonstration started at 8am today at Freedom Square.
