Health students on rampage 4 years ago 1

Delta State School of Health Technology, Ofuoma-Ughelli, yesterday, went on rampage over non- payment of their yearly allowance of N104,000.

The students were also protesting a N10,000 levy for computer training, N6,000 levy for sports and N4,500 for school uniform and the monthly allowance of N5,000 being paid to 300 level students of the institution.

The students locked out the Provost of the School, Mr. Ben Ogheneroro and other staff, after sacking the institution’s security guards.

Attempt by the school authorities to use armed soldiers and other security agents to stop the students from carrying out the protest, were unsuccessful.

A student of the institution, who spoke to newsmen on condition of anonymity, said the state government was owing two years of the N104,000 allowance, adding that all attempts to get the school authorities to take up the case had failed.

He said the school authorities had in the early days of their agitation for the payment of the money and the N5,000 monthly allowance, threatened to expel any student seen championing for or demanding the payment of the arrears. Home Page
