University of Ibadan queries students involved in fee hike protest

Two students at the University of Ibadan, Olamide Iyanuoluwa from the Institute of African Studies and Aduwo Ayodele from the Department of History, have been issued queries for their involvement in a recent protest against a fee hike on campus.

The university management, through a memo dated May 24, 2024, and signed by Deputy Registrar (Students) T.I. Musa, warned of possible suspension if they fail to respond with supporting documents within the given timeframe.

The incident stems from a demonstration on May 13, during which four individuals, including Olamide, Aduwo, Olorunfemi Adeyeye, and Nice Linus, were reportedly detained by Nigerian Army officers. They were protesting against the fee hike.

In a subsequent memo delivered on May 27, the students were accused of disrupting the inauguration of the current Students’ Union administration with their protest, deemed disrespectful and gross misconduct by the university management.

The memo instructed them to respond within 48 hours, presenting reasons why disciplinary action should not be taken against them.

Failure to comply could lead to automatic suspension.
