Academic activities were halted at the University of Calabar on Monday following students’ protests against the 100 per cent hike in the institution’s tuition fees.
Earlier, the university had released a new schedule of fees that would take effect in the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 academic sessions.
The students, who embarked on a peaceful protest to register their dissatisfaction, barricaded the roads leading into the campus, thus preventing workers from coming in.
The protest also caused gridlock on the roads, compelling some motorists to make a U-turn.
