The University of Cross River State (UNICROSS), has reopened for academic activities after the Calabar campus of the varsity was temporarily shutdown two weeks ago.

The institution went haywire after a student, Ford Moses Nkasi was stabbed to death by robbers in the school premises, which led to peaceful protest then, untamed thereafter.

The management on Tuesday, 15 June, in circular no 329 signed by the Registrar, Mr. Victor Ephraim Ene said all students are to pay the sum of three thousand (N3,000) Naira each for damages brought to the State owned institution by the protesters.

The school authorities warned that, failure to pay the said amount on or before Friday June 25, 2021, penalty of ten thousand (N10,000) Naira will be incurred.

It further urge undergraduates to conduct themselves in a civilized manner to avoid further academic delays.

The circular reads:

“Each of the undergraduate student of Calabar Campus is expected to pay the sum of three thousand (N3,000) Naira only, being surcharge for damages brought on the institution.

“All payments are to be made through bank draft to the Bursar, CRUTECH, Calabar. The bank draft shall then be submitted to the students respective Faculty Finance Officer in exchange for a valid receipt.

“All payments should be completed on/or before Friday, June 25, 2021.

“Failure to meet the above payment deadline will attract a penalty of ten thousand (N10,000) Naira only. Lectures will commence on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 in all departments in Calabar campus.

“Students are further instructed to comply with the above directives and to properly conduct themselves as they return to campus, so as to ensure a successful completion of 2019/20 academic session.”

Meanwhile, the surcharge has raised dust amongst students who took to social media to say the issues of insecurity, light and water have not been addressed but quick to call for damages.

Also, they have questioned the management’s rationale to surcharge students while they claim the destructions were carried out by hoodlums, non-indigenes and not students.
