Students of Al-Hiimah University, Ilorin, are currently protesting over the alleged imposition of N50,000 hostel accommodation on all students.

The amount is said to be paid by all students whether living on campus or off campus.

Two students of the institution who spoke with highprofile crew but did not want their names to be mentioned said the school management started with 10,000 last three years and increased it to 15,000 last year.

They said the school authority jumped the payment from 15,000 to 50,000 this year, a decision they said was unacceptable by all the students.

The school gate was under lock and key as at time of filing this report.

The security men are sighted monitoring the peaceful protest in order not to escalate to violence.
