Uniben Reacts As Students Clash With Soldiers

After soldiers and students fought over the new naira notes, the management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has urged calm on campus.

Uniben students and soldiers had a fight after they attempted to bypass the line at the school’s ATM. This led to a fight that injured numerous people, including the institution’s chief security officer (CSO).

The vice chancellor of Uniben, Professor Lilian Salami, issued an appeal for peace in a statement on Friday in response.

She said that the university is in talks with the S & T army barracks hierarchy for a peaceful resolution.

The statement read: “The unfortunate incident of the clash between some students of our university and soldiers on Thursday 2nd February, resulting from alleged resistance of students to the soldiers’ attempt to jump ATM queues on campus has been brought under control and the Management of the University is in discussions with the hierarchy of the S & T for amicable resolution.

“The Management acknowledges that these are challenging times for everyone and enjoins all to remain calm while efforts are being made to avert a re- occurrence.

“Management also calls on the students to constantly engage dialogue in resolving issues that concern them rather than taking to protests, at any provocation, thereby causing more injury and damage to themselves and other citizens.”
