PHOTONEWS: Police Take Over UNILAG Gate To Prevent Students Protest Over ASUU Strike

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).
