At the time of the protests, students, as well as staff of the institution, could not have access into the institution because the gate was locked.

Their reason, according to the protesters, was to express their disapproval of the announcement of the relocation of the institution to Ehime Mbano local government area of the state.

It should be recalled that the Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha, through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, recently made public a press statement, that the Imo Poly, has been relocated to Ehime Mbano.
