The Federal University Wukari, Taraba State, has been temporarily shutdown following the protest that greeted the killing of two students and a lecturer of the institution.

The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abubakar Kundiri, on Wednesday, approved the immediate closure of the university following alleged abduction and killing of some students and a member of staff of the university in the ongoing Jukun/ Tiv ethnic crisis.

It was gathered that the killing sparked protest among Tiv students and staff of the institution.

Consequently, Kundiri through a circular released by the Registrar, Mr Magaji Thomas, directed the immediate closure of the institution.

The circular read, “The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Wukari has approved the suspension of lectures and closure of the institution till further notice.

“This follows the protest by students over the kidnapping of their mates along the Wukari-Katsina Ala Road on Tuesday.

“Students are directed to vacate the hostels and the university premises before 12noon on Wednesday.”

The Jukun/Tiv crisis started since April 1, 2019 in Kente village and has continued on till date.
