Information has it that there was riot at Bowen
University Iwo in Osun State last night.
We really don’t have all the details presently, but
according to information gathered from sources,
the riot was as a result of what they say is lack of
basic amenities like water and light as well as what
they term ‘unnecessary rules & regulations’ being
made by school management, plus plans to
increase their school fees.
The boys destroyed school property, vehicles and
vandalized their chaplain’s home. While the
students were on rampage, the school security
personnel fled but the police was eventually called
in to calm things down
“Bowenites live by rules, sleep by rules, and eat by
rules, but not anymore” one student said
Bowen University is a private university owned and
operated by the Nigerian Baptist Convention.
