The Kaduna State University on Tuesday announced the suspension of academic activities for its undergraduate students indefinitely.

KASU Registrar, Mr Samuel Manshop, disclosed this in a statement in Kaduna.

Manshop, however, did not give any reasons for the suspension.

However, recall that undergraduate students had protested the hike in school fees from between N24,0000 and N36,000 to between N100,000 and N400,000.

The students had in widespread protests demanded a reversal of the new school fees.

The registrar said academic activities would continue for postgraduate programmes, college of medicine, pharmaceutical sciences and part-time programmes.
