Pregnant Woman, Three Others Die As Auchi Polytechnic Students Stage Protest

Top Gist Nigeria Blog has learned that four students including a pregnant woman today lost their lives as students of Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo state protested the school's 'no school fees, no examination' policy.

The School of Evening Studies (SES) popularly called Spat started their first semester examination this week and based on a new policy implemented by the school's management, students who have not paid their school fees were not allowed to sit for the exams.

TGNB gathered that some of the affected students came to the examination hall today, forcefully gained entrance and went ahead to disrupt the examination creating confusion and chaos which later degenerated to a massive protest in the school, leaving four persons dead.
According to TGNB on-the-field correspondent, the protest was peaceful until the school's security personnels started shoting at the protesting students.

The angry students than blocked the Auchi-Abuja express way, destroyed properties among others.

Soldiers have been redeployed into the area and they are currently chasing students with teargas.

Will bring more later....
