The registration process was completed on Friday 25th September 2020 and the submission for payment was made on Monday 28th September 2020 to the Department of Tertiary Education Financing (DTEF).

The students were addressed on this issue, but they persisted and demanded to be paid allowances immediately.  Rioting students intimidated other students who were not part of the demonstrations and further barricaded all access roads.  All these created a potentially dangerous, threatening and violent situation which forced  the University Management to engage appropriate law enforcement authorities  to contain the situation.
