The University of Abuja has been closed indefinitely following two days of student protest over the non-accreditation of some faculties in the institution.
The students began the protest on Monday following the inability of the university management to meet up with the six months period given to it to accredit some of its courses.
The courses are engineering, medicine and veterinary medicine.
The school Registrar said the closure followed protests by students of the institution.
The students were asked to vacate their hostels before 4pm today. they later went to block Abuja-Lokoja road at Gwagwalada, leaving many motorists and travellers stranded for hours. But the police were called in and succeeded in reopening the road after several hours.
They were supposed to have started their second semester exams on Monday before the protest began.
