• Federal College of Education Gombe Shut.

    The management of the Federal College of Education (Technical), Gombe, has announced the indefinite closure of the institution following students’ protest over inadequacy of water supply in the campus.

    The protest resulted in the suspension of the second semester examination which started in April, 2016.

    The Provost of the College, Dr. Gimba Abbas, said “The College is closed down because of the crises and it is based on the directives from the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Commission for Colleges of Education.”

    Although he would not say the school is closed indefinitely, the provost said the College would remain closed until management does its assessments, meet and decide on way forward which he said would take three weeks.

    He said about six students were affected, five of them being asthmatic were affected by the police teargas while the other got a bullet wound.

    In his reaction, the Police Public Relations Officer in Gombe, Ahmed Usman said there was no casualty but confirmed the injury of a staff of the institution who was pelted by the students.

    He said about 100 students were apprehended in connection with the crises and they were immediately released to their Dean of Students Affairs after their statements were taken.
