Eze, who disclosed this yesterday while briefing journalists on the incident, the institution has not introduced any tuition and course registration fees as alleged by some people and students.
The vice chancellor, accompanied by the Registrar, Mr. John Nnabuihe; the Deputy Registrar and Coordinator, Information and Public Affairs, Chike Ezenwa; and some principal officers, Eze said the committee was mandated to ascertain the actual cost of damaged property and report to the management to guide it on the next action to take.
