I saw this coming tho,just like it did during Ajayi Crowther and Bowen Uni’s time. Anyway, Caleb University, Imota, Lagos, has been shut down following students’ protest yesterday which led to the destruction of a lot of properties. The protest didn’t claim any life but led to the destruction of 4 cars,battering of the schools furnitures and wall paintings.
As reported yesterday,the riot after a porter tried to stop a Muslim student from praying in the school, which is a Christian school.
Prof Ayo Olukoju,the VC of the school has however said in a statement released in Punch newspaper this morning that the school will be shut-down but will re-open 2nd of June. See the excerpt from his statement below;
“We have rules and regulations in the school and all the students agreed to abide by them. These rules are in the student handout. Before now, we have been applying appropriate sanctions against students who default in any of these rules. We wanted to enforce one of such sanctions on Wednesday before this crisis escalated. Please, the crisis has nothing to do with religion. It has nothing to do with being a Christian or a Muslim. People, especially female students even went to their worship centres on campus on Wednesday to pray after the incident. Again, I tell you this action was carried out by the male students alone.”
