Students of Benue state university Makurdi in the early hours of Monday 21st may 2018 sealed the school’s main gate to protest against the recent increment in school fees by the school.
 As reported, the increment which came as a result of the state’s government declaration that there was no money to fund the university and that the university should generate revenue by itself to run its affairs was outrightly rejected by the students.

The increment has led some newly admitted students to forfeit their admissions as the new rate cannot be afforded by their parents.
