A presidential convoy was today held hostage by hundreds of protesting students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, after security details attached to the convoy allegedly shot at them. The convoy led by a Toyota SUV with ‘Presidency’ inscription and registration number, FG902-B02, tried to drive through the students who were protesting an increase in fees by the university. Two of the students reportedly sustained injuries.
 
One of the leaders of the protest told PREMIUM TIMES on phone:
“The security details shot at us. We have held them hostage. We will not let him go.”

The students were protesting, on the Ife Expressroad, the increase in their school fees by the university management when the 6-vehicle convoy arrived. The university management increased the fees from about N17,000 to over N100,000.
We demand a total reversal to statusquo,” the student leader said.


It is not yet clear who the occupants of the presidential convoy are as some students said the main occupant is a relative to President Goodluck Jonathan

I paid 90 naira when I got into the university and every student that manages to pass jamb, could afford it. People only struggle to feed, buy cloths and text books because hotel accommodation is included in the fees. Too bad a thing.
