In what could be described as an attempt by the authorities of the University of Uyo, Uyo to send “squatters” away from the Varsity’s Hostel, the major entrance of the M2 Hostel was closed against hundreds of Students.
Samuel Otu, a newly admitted Student authoritatively stated that the action of the Hostel management was to make sure no unregistered Student penetrates the hostel. Old occupants of the hostel were however spotted waiting anxiously for the entrance to be opened.
A number of angry Students were however spotted lamenting and condemning the action of the Hostel management.
“They have not even allowed us to get in and evacuate our lockers, what do they want us to do? I won’t be happy if any of my properties is lost“, Kingsley Bassey, a 300 level Biochemistry Student lamented.
Ekemini Ebiang who also commented on the issue stated that the authorities were just following due process to rid the hostel of illegal occupants. He added that there is no cause for alarm.
