Land guards, backed by a suspected high political office holder, are assaulting both students and residents of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) over a 12-plot land “the University has duely acquired.”
“We have cleared the land, build a wall around it and ready to put up our hostels only to wake one day to the realisation of land guard evasion on the plot assaulting any one who coughs over the property.” said by the SRC President, Zumah Peter.
According to him, the university authorities immediately drew the attention of the Medina Police, ad after few hours of arrest “a single call, they suspected was from some one holding a high political office, asked the police to set the free the culprits and they complied.
” Just few days ago land guards came to attack us.”
The SRCsaid in the course of the arrest, one of the suspects had the gust to slap a police woman and nothing has been done.
“We fear these criminals may come back to attack us.”
The SRC Presudent said the land was arquired by the University for expansion of its hostel infrastructure for the anticipated increasing SHS to enter the University more so with the free shs.
He lamented saying that “accommodation is the serious challenge here and hostels are expensive than fees here.
We need the land to expand our facilities.”
