After the temporary closure of the University of
Port Harcourt over the gruesome murder of four
of the University students in Aluu, a community
in the state, the school authorities have
announced the re-opening of the institution for
full academic activities.
The Deputy Registrar of the University, Williams
Wodi in a statement said the decision to re-open
the school came following an emergency
meeting held by the University Senate
Wodi in the statement urged all students to
return to the campus before weekend as normal
lectures would commence on Monday.
The registrar assured that peace and tranquility
have returned to the university’s neighborhood
especially Omuokiri-Aluu where the four male
students of the institution were gruesomely
murdered last month.
He added that the Vice Chancellor of Uniport,
Professor Joseph Ajienka has met with the elders
of Aluu community who assured that such ugly
incident would not rear its head again.
It would be recalled that the university was
temporarily shutdown following the crisis that
erupted between the community and the
students over the lynch of four students by a
mob in Aluu community.
