UNIBEN Medical Students Forcefully Ejected From Their Hostel As Exam Approaches.
Medical students of UNIBEN, one of Nigeria’s first generation federal universities have been given till Friday to evacuate the NDDC hostel built for their faculty.
The hostel which was said to be built by Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC to solely accommodate medical students is occupied by less than 10% of them.
The 200, 300, 400 and 500 level students of the faculty who have their professional exams coming up next month are without a place to lay their heads.
According to a source who posted the pictures on Instagram, students are seen flocking outside the hostel building in what can be described as a protest to challenge the decision.
It is also reported that “Rooms are being given to students from other faculties, and medical students have been asked to evacuate the temporary inadequate hostels provided latest by Friday.”
Neither the Vice-Chancellor Prof Faraday Orumwense nor the school authorities have made any official statement yet but Trends44is on standby to bring you reports as they drop.
