UNILAG Shut Indefinitely As Students Agitate Over Erratic Electricity And Water Supply

Management of the University of Lagos has ordered all students to vacate all halls of residence and declared all academic activities suspended indefinitely.

The management said its decision was informed by students' agitation yesterday, which paralyzed the campus and disturbed the community.

The students protested yesterday complaining about poor electricity and water supply on campus.

In a memo circulated widely this morning, the university authorities dismissed the student's agitation as a matter of "municipal service", citing national fuel scarcity as a primary cause of hardship on campus.

The memo states that the school is now indefinitely closed to forestall damage to life and property from students' violent protests. 

The school authority has therefore ordered all students to vacate the campus before 10.00am today, adding that the school would resume when fuel situation improves in the country.
