The Vice Counselor of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, Prof. F.C Eze has replied to the circulating rumour that he ran away on Friday during the protest without addressing the students.
He said he was not in school on Friday 17th Feb 2017. He neither saw the protesters nor met them.
As time goes on, reports will keep coming and rumours will give-way.
At the moment, the rumour of the VC escaping the school premises with a cyclist should be debunked or kept aside for future verification.
The FUTO PROTEST of 17th Feb 2017 is a type that has never been on record since the existence of the Federal University Of Technology Owerri, FUTO as an academic institution.
Official reports are yet to be published. So there is for now, no officially compiled report of the 17 Feb Black-Friday protest in FUTO.
