Security Officials Sexually Harass Female Students On Campus

 

Many students of the University of Maiduguri sustained injuries while protesting the recent increment in tuition by the management of the institution while some of the female protesters were reportedly stripped naked in public and sexually harassed while in detention by campus security officials, eyewitnesses told The Punch.

 

The students were said to have embarked on a peaceful protest on Monday over the increase in tuition by the management of the institution, a move that was in defiance of a threat by the Dean of Student Affairs at the university, Gimba, that the university management would deal with those trying to breach the peace on campus.

Eyewitnesses told The Punch that many female students had joined their colleagues in the protest when security operatives stormed the scene to disperse the protesters with minimum force, while arresting many.

 

A 200 Level female student, Zainab, while confirming the tuition fee hike, told The Punch that, “The institution increased the tuition fee by N5,000 despite the first increment at the inception of the Aliyu Shugaba administration in June 2019; without visible improvement in infrastructure”.
