Students of University of Calabar, UNICAL Protest against neglect of their welfare by the authorities of the university.
As students demonstrated in their Protest they blocked Major roads in Calabar the capital of Cross River State in Nigeria’s South-south region.
The UNICAL Protest, which began at about 5.30 a.m., created panic as workers and traders got stranded at roads linking the university, including Etta Agbor, IBB Way and Mary Slessor Road.
The placards read: “VC, give us water and light, students cannot study without light and water, electricity and water is our right,’’ among others.
Similarly, they called for the reversal of a recent hike in their school fees.
The students appealed to the Federal Government to intervene and ensure better living and study conditions in the institution.
