A female student captured in a viral video explained that there is no laboratory for science students, neither is there enough seats available.

She said; ”Science class we don’t even have a lab. Science class we have never taken practical .

See Biology, Physics, Chemistry, no lab. No seat. You will be standing. How would you even listen to the lectures that they are teaching. You will not even understand even one thing.”

According to reports, the number of students at the school is about 1,000 and their tuition per term is 4,800 out of which 500 is furniture fee.
