The scheduled Second semester examinations of the University of Abuja could not hold Monday as the students took over the gates of the permanent site, venue of the examinations, protesting the non-accreditation of some faculties even as school authorities insisted the institution had not been shut.

It will be recalled that some few months ago same protest took place when the National Universities Commission proscribed some faculties of the university stating that some of those faculties lacked basic requirements for the school authorities to offer the courses.

The students in thier thousands took over the gates as early as 6am Monday preventing staff and others from gaining entrance into the school.
