Panic As Protest Breaks Out At UI Gate

The gate of the University of Ibadan was on Monday blocked by protesters who aimed to express their dissatisfaction over the ongoing economic chaos in the country.

Members of the community blocked the institution’s gate, thereby preventing vehicular movement and other activities.

According to a student, soldiers and Operation Burst operatives had arrived the scene.

However, the university’s Communication Officer, Adejoke Akinpelu, told our correspondent that the protesters had been dispersed by the security personnel.

"The U.I Chief Security Officer told me that it was some miscreants in the community who gathered themselves together at the gate this morning, causing problems.

"Our students are sitting for their exams so they are not part of them.

"I was also told the security personnel who came have dispersed them.”
