We explained that most of us are doing our industrial training either at the Farm, in the case of Agric students or in schools as in the case of Education students. He insisted that he was only giving us 30 minutes to pack out.
To where he didn’t say. We told him to give us time so that those that went to the farm can come back. Note that we paid N1k for the temporal accommodation. He said he was going to call security for us.
In less than 10minutes, UNN security came and started beating and kicking girls out of the hostel. They were shouting at us, calling us all kinds of degrading names, their favorite being prostitutes.”
