Barely one day after the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, suspended its 5-month old strike, the University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, has been shut down indefinitely by the institution’s workers, Daily Post reports.

During the serious protest in the University on Wednesday, all the workers union demanded the immediate sack of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Bartho Okolo.

According to Vanguard, it was the largest demonstration of members of staff of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, since the university was founded.

Academic and non-academic workers of both campuses converged on the campus in a spontaneous peaceful demonstration to demand the reinstatement of the Chairman of the Governing Council, Prof Emeka Enejere, who was said to have been suspended.

They chanted songs saying it was the Vice Chancellor, Prof Bartho Okolo, instead, who should be sacked.

After marching for half of the day and some members of staff addressed the press at the Freedom Square, they however, dispersed, promising to return for daily demonstrations until the Council Chairman was reinstated and other ills of the university which they alleged originated by Prof Okolo were corrected.

A professor told Vanguard that "the Federal Government would have to choose between only one man (Okolo) or working with all of us."

It has been gathered that Okolo is accused of corrupt practices and neglect of due process in running the affairs of the university.
