Otuoke community shuts down Federal University over employment, admission

Written by Elvis Boniface

The members of the Otuoke community in Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa, on Thursday took to the streets and barricaded the entrance to the Federal University in the area.

The community was protesting the university’s non-implementation of the employment and admission quota due to it.

Otuoke is the home town of President Goodluck Jonathan.

The protesters, carrying placards and singing solidarity songs, marched to the entrance of the university and blocked the access road to it, forcing the school authorities to suspend the on-going end of semester examinations.

The university was subsequently shut down.
