UNN Lecturers Stage Protest, Call For Wike's Sack

A peaceful demonstration is currently going on at the University Of Nigeria, Nsukka as at the time of this report following the sack of the Chairman of the University's Governing council, Emeka Enejere by the co-ordinating minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike yesterday. Others are also calling for the sack of the institution's Vice Chancellor, Professor Batho Okolo

The suspension of Enejere was only announced on air without any reasons being made.
Members of ASUU, NASU and NAT (National Association of Technologists) are currently protesting in the University.
The protest started from the freedom square and they are now approaching the school gate as chanting continues.

Police men were on ground and as at the time of this report, nothing less than seven (7) Police Hilux vehicles were following the protesters.

Trouble started just after the ASUU Chapter of UNN rose from a meeting as a result of the suspension of the five months old strike which was called off yesterday.
The School's Chief Security Officer, Mr. Uzoma had earlier attempted stopping the meeting from convening as he said it was an 'order from above'.

UNN's ASUU chairman, Dr. Agada and other ASUU executives are leading the protest as they are preparing for a press conference just outside the school.

The ASUU Chairman in a chat with the press has called for the immediate restoration of Enejere and the sack of the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Bartho Okolo

This is coming just about a fortnight after the host community staged a demonstration that the University administration is treating them with impunity.
