Students situated at the Westville Campus in KZN had armed themselves with petrol bombs and stones. On Tuesday night they took to the campus with their petrol bombs and torched the building.
The destructive behaviour is in retaliation to the on-going protests of historical student fee-debts.
Brigadier Jay Naicker released a statement saying that the students managed to overpower the security guards on the campus and not long after went and torched the building.
During the process of overpowering the guards the students began to throw stones, the guards eventually managed to escape and notify the police.
After many hours the emergency services were able to extinguish the inferno leaving behind a scorched wreck.
At this time no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
