The protest yesterday, brought the academic activities to a standstill in the school, as they took over the ever-busy Aba-Owerri road.

According to a post made available by Politics Nigeria, via their verified Facebook page.

It was reported that, the students were protesting, against the police, over the alleged rape of a female student of the polytechnic, by three operatives of the Special Rapid Response (SRS).

The victim was said to have been allegedly whisked away from their off-campus lodge, located at Immaculate Street, near Aba-North Council Headquarters, Aba, in Abia State, by some men of the said SRS.

The SRS operatives were said, to have taken the lady alongside others, to an undisclosed location, where they allegedly ‘gang’ raped her.

The scores of protesting students were pictured, erecting barricades, blocking roads, and preventing free flow of movements. Some of the placards they displayed during the protest reads; “Say no to rape", among others.

The police men sent to monitor the protest, however, embarked on a brutal crackdown of the students, shooting live rounds at them and injuring many.
