The students trailed Nyesom Wike, governor of the state, who had rounded off a speech inside the building, demanding explanation over the cancellation of their bursary scheme. .

Obviously angry over their action, Wike said: “You think if you do this you will win anybody over? I have passed this stage. By the time you do this, you won’t get what you want.” .

A supporter of the governor tried to pacify one of the students but Wike interjected, saying: “Leave him, he is too rude.” A male voice in the crowd was heard telling the governor to put them through because they “are young people”. .

After pausing for a while, Wike said: “Put those placards down!” Last month, the UK Telegraph reported that more than 100 Nigerian students face deportation because their funding had been withdrawn by the government. .

The newspaper did not disclose the particular government but said the decision to withdraw the funding without their knowledge left some students saddled with debts of up to £20,000.
