Students of the University of Nigeria on Wednesday protested against the suspension of the university’s Chairman and Pro-Chancellor, Dr. Emeka Enejere, by the Federal Government.

The UNN students divided themselves into 11 groups and marched through the major streets of the Enugu metropolis, displaying various placards.

Some of the placards read, ‘Recall Enejere now or we would burn down UNN’, and ‘You gave us a fraudulent man like Salisu Buhari as UNN board member, and you have now sacked a honest man like Enejere’.

Others read, ‘FG, stop all these vengeful policies’, ‘It is Enejere or no school’, among other statements.

The students warned that if the government failed to rescind its decision and recall Enejere, they would embark on an indefinite strike and boycott classes from January 2014.

One of them said, “We have thought deep and investigated and we see no reason why the Federal Government sacked Dr. Enejere. If they don’t change their mind and cancel the suspension order, we would make UNN uncomfortable.”
