There was riot at Bowen University Iwo in Osun State last night. I really don’t have all the details but according to what some students told me, the riot was over 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
