Katsina federal varsity shut over VC’s reinstatement
The Federal University, Dutsinma, Katsina State, has been shut following tension over reinstatement of its Vice Chancellor, Prof. Haruna Kaita, who was fired by the university’s management over alleged financial misappropriation, but recently reinstated by a court order.
His attempt to resume office last Friday led to a build up of tension between his sympathisers and those in support of his ousting. An eyewitness said some of the students on Friday showed their disapproval of the VC’s reinstatement by shouting slogans to kick against his recall, while those in support of the his return tried to confront them.
It was learnt that the situation led to division of students and staff along religious lines.
