UNILAG Students Ordered To Vacate Campus Indefinitely
The students of University of Lagos, (UNILAG) have been asked to vacate their hostels at Akoka, Yaba Campus with immediate effect.
The institution revealed that some students had protested over the incessant Power Outage and Poor Power Supply in school and had moved to meet with the management on Thursday, April 7, with a view to finding a lasting solution to the crisis.
Rather than proffer a solution to the issues raised by the students, the management of the institution, rising from an emergency meeting on Thursday, ordered the students out of the institution while other activities in the school continues.
In a circular passed on Thursday, the students were asked to leave the school on or before 10.00 am on Friday, April 8 until municipal services improve. As at the time of filing this report, sources say the students’ union leader, Mohammed Olaniyan was arrested and released. But his phone was collected from him.
In a tweet by one of the students of the institution, about ten patrol vehicles of the Nigeria Police Force were sighted at the institution to enforce the management’s order.
Recent reports have confirmed that some students of the institution were seen jumping over the fence to leave the school premises after being locked up inside the compound.
