Kaduna State University (KASU), Kaduna has suspended the academic activities of its undergraduate students indefinitely.

The KASU Registrar, Mr Samuel Manshop, made this known via a statement in Kaduna on Tuesday.

The Registrar, however, did not give reasons for the suspension.

Manshop noted that academic activities would continue for postgraduate programmes, college of medicine, pharmaceutical sciences and part-time programmes.

The statement read, “The management of KASU wishes to notify staff, students and the public that academic activities for undergraduate students have been suspended indefinitely.

“Postgraduate programmes, college of medicine, faculty of pharmaceutical sciences and part-time programmes are to continue with their activities.

“Staff is also expected to report to work as usual, while management will communicate further developments.”

It would be recalled that KASU undergraduate students had protested the hike in school fees from between N24,0000 and N36,000 to between N100,000 and N400,000.

Students, who began the protest since the increment was announced in April, demanded the reversal of the new school fees.
