Students of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, have taken to the streets and roads to kick against an increase in their school fees.
It was learnt that authorities of the institution announced a hike in the school fees from N45,000 to about N160,000, which the students are not happy about.
This new increment, it was learnt, affects fresh and 200 level students.
On Monday morning, some of the aggrieved students staged a protest against the development. They reportedly blocked some roads around the school environment.
However, things took a bad turn when security operatives deployed to control the students allegedly turned the demonstration into a violent one.
Two students were reported shot during the process and have been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Some of the students accused the school authorities of being insensitive to happenings in the country. They asked where they expected their parents to cough out such amount in this economic recession period.
