The Kaduna State University (KASU) students on Tuesday stormed the state’s Government House to protest the sudden hike in their tuition fees.

FIJ had reported how the state-owned university hiked its tuition fees from N26,000 to N500,000.

Indigenous Social Science students are required to pay about N150,000 while their counterparts in Medicine and other science courses are to pay at least N170,000 and above as annual fees.

The university has a student population of about 19,000, close to 17,000 of whom are indigenes.

The protesting students displayed placards with various inscriptions and chanting songs of solidarity, according to ChannelsTV.

Some of the students were seen conducting prayers on the main road while others obstructed the flow of traffic, demanding a reversal to their old tuition fees.

A press release by the Students’ Union of the institution had expressed fears about the effect of the increment, with the possibility of many students dropping out despite having scholarships.
