About 34 postgraduate students protested on Monday on the Nigerian High Commission in London, blocking the three entrances to the embassy building.

The aggrieved students are among the many 94 students of the Batch 2018 of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) overseas scholarship programme who’re but to obtain tuition and allowance for their upkeep from their sponsor – the NDDC.
