A student of the University of Port Harcourt named Peter Ofurum and said to be the Faculty president of Management Sciences, (pictured above) was allegedly shot dead by the police during a protest by the students this morning over the increment in school fees and the “no school fees-no examination” policy of the school.
The students allege that police officers brought in to maintain law and order, fired gunshots which hit the deceased, killing him. Angry students have started destroying school properties and properties of resident lecturer in protest of his death. The school has since been shut down. See photo of the deceased HERE
