Students of the University of Abuja launched a massive protest on Monday morning over the death of a fellow student simply identified as ‘Simi’, a 200 level student of history and diplomacy.
The protesting students blocked the Abuja – Gwagwalada highway, the main expressway into the country’s capital city.Politics Nigeria learnt that a wreckless driver had hit Simi, killing her instantly and ran over four other students who were seriously injured yesterday.
Both entrance & exit sides of the highway were blocked by the student since 6am, causing traffic gridlocks on the ever-busy Abuja expressway. They didn’t allow any vehicle to pass the highway but permitted passengers to disembark from vehicles & gave them freeway to go about their daily duties.
The protesting students totally halted vehicular movements. Photos from the protest below;
