University Students Storm the Street over Alleged Assault of their Colleague by Man ‘O’ War Officials

University Students have registered their displeasure as protested on Thursday against the alleged assault of their fellow student, Victor Tobin, by Man ‘O’ War officials.

Hundreds of students at Rivers State University in Nkpolu-Oroworukwo, Port Harcourt, protested on Thursday against the alleged assault of their fellow student, Victor Tobin, by Man ‘O’ War officials.

Victor Tobin, a third-year Sociology student, reportedly walked on the pavement near the Man ‘O’ War office by Hostel F on Wednesday morning, which angered the officials. The reason for their anger is unclear, but they allegedly assaulted Tobin, resulting in injuries including a swollen right eye.

The incident quickly spread across campus, prompting students to gather at the Man ‘O’ War office on Thursday morning to demand answers. They condemned the assault and called for the disbandment of the Man ‘O’ War on campus, citing persistent human rights abuses.

One protesting student insisted that any offense should be dealt with by the appropriate authorities or the police, not through violence. The protest disrupted a meeting between the university management and the Students’ Union Government (SUG), with students threatening to attack the Man ‘O’ War personnel if they didn’t leave the campus.

The situation escalated, but police intervention prevented further violence. SUG President Abinye Pepple expressed his disapproval of the Man ‘O’ War’s actions and noted the frustration of the students. Pepple also mentioned a planned meeting with the Vice Chancellor (VC) to address the issue and determine the future of the Man ‘O’ War on campus.

Pepple and the VC managed to calm the students, assuring them that a decision would be made in a meeting scheduled for Friday. Acting Registrar Mrs. I. B. S. Harry confirmed the incident, stating that an emergency meeting had been held to investigate the matter. She assured that normalcy had been restored, lectures were ongoing, and the issue was receiving the necessary attention.
