This is coming few days after parents and guardians of students of Kaduna State University (KASU) were forced to sign an undertaking that their children would not participate in a protest against an increase in their school fees.

The school, following directives from the state government, had threatened that any student who participates in such protests would be expelled.

The students had staged protests against the tuition fees increase for weeks, asking Nasir el-Rufai, the Governor of the state, to reverse it to enable indigent students continue their studies.
