Police Take Over UNILAG Gate To Prevent Students Protest Over ASUU Strike| Photos

About ten police vans are stationed at the gate of
the University of Lagos today with a couple
others sighted on campus.
The students of UNILAG began mobilizing via
social media networks late last week, inviting
other students to join in a protest that would
likely commence at the varsity gate like the fuel
subsidy protest of January 2012, held at the Gani
FAwehinmi Freedom Park in Ojota.
The students want the Nigerian government to
quickly end the ongoing lecturers strike by
honoring its agreement of 2009 with university
teachers, but other issues topping their agenda
include requests for the reinstatement of Student
Union Government (SUG) at the University of
Lagos (UNILAG) and reversal on the hike in tuition
fees at the Lagos State University (LASU).
