An internal memo sent by Prof. Mibey has indefinitely suspended academic activities at the Law School. The Vice Chancellor said the School has been closed due to lecturers not teaching for the last two weeks.
“Students are therefore advised to vacate the University by 12.00 noon today,” states the memo.
There has been tension in the last few days after some students announced they will go on hunger strike until the lecturers resolve the issues with the university administration.
