Adamawa College of Education shut indefinitely over students’ unrest

The management of the Adamawa State College of Education (COE), Hong, has shut down the institution indefinitely over students’ unrest.

The notice, signed for the College Registrar by the Deputy Registrar, Yusufu Usman, and dated 29/11/2021, asked all students and workers, except management staff and security personnel, to vacate the college immediately.

“I am directed to inform all members of staff and students of the indefinite closure of the college due to students’ unrest which led to damage and looting of government properties,” the deputy registrar stated.

Sources who offered explanation to the said students unrest at the college in the northern Adamawa Hong town, said a centre of the college was razed by the protesting students over increase in tuition fees and change of the time table for a scheduled examination.
